    Toast-Kaizen - mp4 #2
  • Not Synced
    Speaker: The video that you're
  • Not Synced
    about to see is being created to
  • Not Synced
    demonstrate some of the basic philosophy
  • Not Synced
    and principles of the Toyota Production
  • Not Synced
    System, or as we call it today,
  • Not Synced
    lean thinking. Lean manufacturing.
  • Not Synced
    Or lean administrative.
  • Not Synced
    The ideas apply equally to any segment
  • Not Synced
    of the business.
  • Not Synced
    But we take them into the kitchen to try
  • Not Synced
    to get them out of all of those areas,
  • Not Synced
    so that people can watch without being
  • Not Synced
    encumbered by predispositions that they have
  • Not Synced
    about their current jobs.
  • Not Synced
    It is a go-see video, where we ask people
  • Not Synced
    to watch and become engaged, which is also
  • Not Synced
    a critical part of being lean.

    So join us and enjoy.
  • Not Synced
    It's amazing what we can learn
  • Not Synced
    from our own intuition if we will only
  • Not Synced
    watch and see, what's going on
  • Not Synced
    in the process.
  • Not Synced
    Two of the most important points of
  • Not Synced
    what we call lean manufacturing
  • Not Synced
    involve direct observation of the process.
  • Not Synced
    And then, once we understand what we see,
  • Not Synced
    effective use of countermeasures to remove
  • Not Synced
    the problems that we see.
  • Not Synced
    And in particular,
  • Not Synced
    the use of what we call Kaizen.
  • Not Synced
    Kaizen is a Japanese word that means
  • Not Synced
    "small change for the better."

    Many small changes for the better,
  • Not Synced
    and in particular, it means small changes
  • Not Synced
    that are created from the intuition,
  • Not Synced
    experience and common sense of the people
  • Not Synced
    who do the work.
  • Not Synced
    Too often, we overlook these opportunities
  • Not Synced
    and as Mr. Ono and Mr. Shingo
  • Not Synced
    at the Toyota Motor Works discovered,
  • Not Synced
    almost 9/10 of the time
  • Not Synced
    between paying and getting paid,

    in our business, involves waste --
  • Not Synced
    which can be identified through
  • Not Synced
    direct observation if we will only watch.
  • Not Synced
    So today we have a process
  • Not Synced
    for everyone to watch.
  • Not Synced
    Every shop floor, of course, is different.

    And we need to choose a shop floor which
  • Not Synced
    is easy to bring to many people
  • Not Synced
    and one in which you all can
  • Not Synced
    provide some intuition, because you have
  • Not Synced
    done the process yourself.
  • Not Synced
    So we pick a very simple process
  • Not Synced
    and that process is making toast.
  • Not Synced
    Now it is a simple process.
  • Not Synced
    Uh, but it does involve a machine,
  • Not Synced
    a toaster. And tools. A knife.
  • Not Synced
    Conveyance equipment. A plate.
  • Not Synced
    It involves a customer.
  • Not Synced
    In this case, it's -- my wife --
  • Not Synced
    is the customer.
  • Not Synced
    And it involves a person who is doing
  • Not Synced
    the work and that will be me.

    So I invite you to come to my shop floor
  • Not Synced
    where we can watch the process
  • Not Synced
    very carefully and watch with an eye
  • Not Synced
    for improvement to try to understand what
  • Not Synced
    can be made better in this process.
  • Not Synced
    Watch the video and then we'll get your
  • Not Synced
    thinking before we continue with
  • Not Synced
    an improvement.
  • Not Synced
    I'm making some toast for my wife.
  • Not Synced
    [Rustling noises]
  • Not Synced
    [Toaster pops]
  • Not Synced
    Geez.
  • Not Synced
    [Muttering to himself]
  • Not Synced
    [Sighs.]
  • Not Synced
    Honey, I made you some toast!
  • Not Synced
    Is it raisin toast?
  • Not Synced
    OK. I hope you enjoyed watching
  • Not Synced
    the before condition, and I'll bet
  • Not Synced
    since you were watching with
  • Not Synced
    an eye for improvement, you saw lots of
  • Not Synced
    things that could be improved.
  • Not Synced
    This, in fact, is what happens when we
  • Not Synced
    truly have direct observation.
  • Not Synced
    You know, we're all so much creatures
  • Not Synced
    of habit that we come to work, all of us,
  • Not Synced
    trying to do a good day's work,
  • Not Synced
    and we work around the problems.

    You know, the common expression is,
  • Not Synced
    whatever it takes to get the job done.
  • Not Synced
    We're not focused on improvement when
  • Not Synced
    we're trying to get our jobs done.
  • Not Synced
    We're just focused on trying to get things
  • Not Synced
    done in spite of all the problems
  • Not Synced
    that crop up.
  • Not Synced
    But this time you came and watched
  • Not Synced
    the process with an eye for improvement.

    And what are the things that you saw?

    I'll bet you saw, for example,
  • Not Synced
    that I did an awful lot of walking around.
  • Not Synced
    We call that waste of motion.
  • Not Synced
    You saw me walk back and forth,
  • Not Synced
    perhaps four times.
  • Not Synced
    You say, well, did that add any value
  • Not Synced
    to the function of making toast?
  • Not Synced
    So we look for that sort of thing
  • Not Synced
    and we try to reduce it. We look for
  • Not Synced
    ways to reduce steps and motion.
  • Not Synced
    And in fact, if we were able to move
  • Not Synced
    the toaster closer to the bread,
  • Not Synced
    that would reduce that particular
  • Not Synced
    motion altogether. This is what we call
  • Not Synced
    Kaizen: a simple improvement that can
  • Not Synced
    have a very big effect.
  • Not Synced
    One possibility, course,
  • Not Synced
    would have been that I could have had a
  • Not Synced
    motorized tract to move me back and forth.

    Mr. Shingo would have called that
  • Not Synced
    a superficial improvement,
  • Not Synced
    because that would only be automating
  • Not Synced
    the waste of motion.
  • Not Synced
    He said, we need to find ways
  • Not Synced
    to truly reduce the kinds of waste
  • Not Synced
    that we see; not cover them up.
  • Not Synced
    Here's another example of motion.
  • Not Synced
    Motion is one of those wastes that's
  • Not Synced
    truly a people waste.
  • Not Synced
    Things that we must do in our jobs
  • Not Synced
    all require motion.
  • Not Synced
    But the question is, how much motion.
  • Not Synced
    Because we would like to have
  • Not Synced
    as little as possible.
  • Not Synced
    Uh, when I was searching for the butter,
  • Not Synced
    in the refrigerator,
  • Not Synced
    how much time should I spend looking?
  • Not Synced
    I had to dig through the refrigerator
  • Not Synced
    on several shelves until I found the butter.

    Now that would be one of those things
  • Not Synced
    that we would say is necessary
  • Not Synced
    to get the job done.
  • Not Synced
    And that's true, but it is waste.
  • Not Synced
    The customer does not pay when
  • Not Synced
    we are searching for things.

    And almost every job has this condition.

    Could be a pen, could be a calculator.
  • Not Synced
    Could be a crescent wrench.
  • Not Synced
    You may be breaking a sweat
  • Not Synced
    looking for this part.
  • Not Synced
    You may spend a very long time.

    But it's not work.
  • Not Synced
    And the customer doesn't pay for it.
  • Not Synced
    You know, motion is often very tiring.
  • Not Synced
    Stressful. Sometimes even dangerous.
  • Not Synced
    But we're used to it.
  • Not Synced
    It's just something that
  • Not Synced
    we're accustomed to.
  • Not Synced
    So we do it all the time.

    Mr. Shingo pointed out
  • Not Synced
    on a number of occasions that
  • Not Synced
    eliminating waste is not the problem.

    It's identifying it.
  • Not Synced
    It's actually being able to see it.
  • Not Synced
    And sometimes we are so familiar with
  • Not Synced
    things that aren't working,
  • Not Synced
    that we've forgotten about them.
  • Not Synced
    So we need to go back and observe directly.
  • Not Synced
    Observe our own work.
  • Not Synced
    Just like when we watch toast.
  • Not Synced
    In order to understand where
  • Not Synced
    those wastes are.
  • Not Synced
    When you eliminate motion from your work,
  • Not Synced
    you're making the job easier.
  • Not Synced
    You're making the day better.
  • Not Synced
    Because you're making problems
  • Not Synced
    that you've had disappear.
  • Not Synced
    And when that happens,
  • Not Synced
    you can do more work.
  • Not Synced
    It won't be more tiring,
  • Not Synced
    but it will be more work.
  • Not Synced
    And so that's just one of the seven wastes
  • Not Synced
    which Mr. Shingo identified.
  • Not Synced
    Here's another one.
  • Not Synced
    Did you get a little nervous and antsy
  • Not Synced
    watching me wait for that toast?
  • Not Synced
    Well, he said, you know, waiting is
  • Not Synced
    a big part of the process.
  • Not Synced
    The customer doesn't pay for waiting.
  • Not Synced
    There are times when waiting is part
  • Not Synced
    of the process. Where it's important.

    For example, if it's important for something
  • Not Synced
    to age or glue to dry.
  • Not Synced
    Or if it's important for us to take
  • Not Synced
    a rest occasionally.
  • Not Synced
    This causes a delay in the process,
  • Not Synced
    but this is important,
  • Not Synced
    because it's necessary,
  • Not Synced
    it's part of the work.
  • Not Synced
    But if you're waiting for a toaster
  • Not Synced
    which is taking a very long time,
  • Not Synced
    what else could we be doing during
  • Not Synced
    that time?
  • Not Synced
    You may think that it's easy
  • Not Synced
    to find out what to do,
  • Not Synced
    but in fact, the person's time
  • Not Synced
    is very different from the machine's time.
  • Not Synced
    And often we pay people to stand
  • Not Synced
    and watch machines.
  • Not Synced
    Sometimes we buy a big machine
  • Not Synced
    and it's making defects for us.
  • Not Synced
    So we pay somebody to stand
  • Not Synced
    and be sure that it doesn't make a defect.

    This doesn't value the employee and it
  • Not Synced
    surely does not improve our productivity.

    So there's another waste: waiting.
  • Not Synced
    In fact, you know, there's a lot of
  • Not Synced
    waiting that goes on. Not only for people.

    In fact, most often in factories,
  • Not Synced
    and in offices, we don't wait.
  • Not Synced
    People don't wait. But material waits.
  • Not Synced
    Information waits.
  • Not Synced
    It waits in inboxes. It waits on pallets.

    It waits even on trucks.
  • Not Synced
    It looks like it's moving but actually
  • Not Synced
    it's just sitting there. It's waiting.

    And Mr. Shingo said, customers don't want
  • Not Synced
    to pay for that.
  • Not Synced
    That's increasing the time between paying
  • Not Synced
    and getting paid. That's another waste.
  • Not Synced
    Now occasionally we do have
  • Not Synced
    to move that material.

    We have to move it from
  • Not Synced
    point A to point B.
  • Not Synced
    And you can't make a part or you can't run
  • Not Synced
    a business without some transportation.
  • Not Synced
    You need to move things around.
  • Not Synced
    But how far? Well, that has to do with
  • Not Synced
    the distance between operations.
  • Not Synced
    And in fact, there was some transportation.
  • Not Synced
    And another waste of storage.
  • Not Synced
    Picking things up and putting them down.
  • Not Synced
    How many times did I pick the toast up
  • Not Synced
    and put it down in process of toasting?

    The function here, of course, is making toast,
  • Not Synced
    and that involves picking it up once anyway,
  • Not Synced
    but how many times did I pick it up?
  • Not Synced
    And how many storage points were there?
  • Not Synced
    Often when we think of storage,
  • Not Synced
    we think only of the warehouse.
  • Not Synced
    And some storage in a warehouse
  • Not Synced
    may be legitimate.
  • Not Synced
    But why everywhere else?

    Are our factories and offices warehouses,
  • Not Synced
    or are they workplaces?
  • Not Synced
    So we need to be able to see those wastes
  • Not Synced
    and identify them as waste, because
  • Not Synced
    every time we are storing information
  • Not Synced
    or material, we're not really
  • Not Synced
    adding value to it.
  • Not Synced
    The customer doesn't want to pay for that.
  • Not Synced
    We can't put at the bottom of the invoice,
  • Not Synced
    this product was stored many times.
  • Not Synced
    So we're charging you extra for it.
  • Not Synced
    So we call that value added.
  • Not Synced
    From the customer standpoint.

    What is the value that the customer
  • Not Synced
    expects in the process?
  • Not Synced
    Here's another waste. Defects.
  • Not Synced
    Were there any defects here?
  • Not Synced
    Well, in this case there was
  • Not Synced
    a very big defect. There was scrap.
  • Not Synced
    There were four pieces of scrap and why?
  • Not Synced
    Because I wasn't making what
  • Not Synced
    the customer needed.
  • Not Synced
    Now obviously in this case it would be
  • Not Synced
    easy for me to ask the customer,
  • Not Synced
    but very often, a factory or an office is
  • Not Synced
    set up working on things which are
  • Not Synced
    not needed. Not needed today.
  • Not Synced
    Maybe needed next week.
  • Not Synced
    Maybe needed next month.
  • Not Synced
    But they're not needed now.
  • Not Synced
    And if we're not careful, we'll end up
  • Not Synced
    producing something which
  • Not Synced
    we'll have to scrap.
  • Not Synced
    Now there's a couple of other wastes
  • Not Synced
    that I haven't covered yet.
  • Not Synced
    Let me just mention one now. Processing.
  • Not Synced
    Sometimes in the processing itself,
  • Not Synced
    there are things which don't make sense.

    We do them because that's the way
  • Not Synced
    the process is designed,
  • Not Synced
    but maybe we need to look at the process
  • Not Synced
    more closely to understand how
  • Not Synced
    it could be improved.
  • Not Synced
    The way I had to cut butter in
  • Not Synced
    that first condition,
  • Not Synced
    is an inadequate process.
  • Not Synced
    Sure, the function of buttering toast
  • Not Synced
    requires that we cut the butter.
  • Not Synced
    But nobody says it should be
  • Not Synced
    as hard as a rock.
  • Not Synced
    And of course, who can identify that waste?

    Now, of course, there needs to be a condition
  • Not Synced
    in your business when a waste like that
  • Not Synced
    is identified that we can make an improvement.

    In the real world sometimes a person might
  • Not Synced
    identify a waste like that, speak to their boss,
  • Not Synced
    and the boss might say, you know,
  • Not Synced
    we have brought people who solve those problems.
  • Not Synced
    Why don't you just quit complaining
  • Not Synced
    and get back to your job?
  • Not Synced
    So simple things often are not fixed
  • Not Synced
    because we don't observe directly.
  • Not Synced
    The last waste -- the last waste and
  • Not Synced
    the worst waste of all,
  • Not Synced
    we call over-production.
  • Not Synced
    Over-production is producing information
  • Not Synced
    or material either too soon or in
  • Not Synced
    too great a quantity.
  • Not Synced
    Now in our traditional thinking,
  • Not Synced
    over-production isn't even
  • Not Synced
    a meaningful word.
  • Not Synced
    How could it be a problem to produce more.
  • Not Synced
    Because we'll sell it.
  • Not Synced
    We'll sell it eventually.
  • Not Synced
    Or if we're able to do it sooner than later,
  • Not Synced
    why not?
  • Not Synced
    Uh, but if you think about over-production,
  • Not Synced
    if we make something and we can't use it
  • Not Synced
    right now, we're gonna have to move it somewhere.
  • Not Synced
    And that's transportation.
  • Not Synced
    And then we're gonna have to store it.
  • Not Synced
    That's storage.
  • Not Synced
    And in fact if we're making something right now,
  • Not Synced
    that isn't needed, well, we're causing something
  • Not Synced
    behind to wait, aren't we?
  • Not Synced
    We don't think of it as waiting
  • Not Synced
    because we're very busy.
  • Not Synced
    But the customer is waiting.
  • Not Synced
    The next job is waiting.
  • Not Synced
    Why do you suppose I made four slices
  • Not Synced
    of toast? Would would I do that?
  • Not Synced
    Well, it's a four-slice toaster, right?
  • Not Synced
    Now I don't even know what
  • Not Synced
    the customer wants, but unfortunately,
  • Not Synced
    this is often the case.
  • Not Synced
    And if we don't know what the customer wants,
  • Not Synced
    and we may want to maximize the resource.
  • Not Synced
    We may say, don't load that oven until
  • Not Synced
    there are four slices.
  • Not Synced
    Let's keep the customer waiting.
  • Not Synced
    More efficient, isn't it?
  • Not Synced
    Well, not if the customer is
  • Not Synced
    not going to buy it.
  • Not Synced
    We're gonna end up scrapping it.
  • Not Synced
    So you see, this whole idea of
  • Not Synced
    the seven wastes --
  • Not Synced
    -- if you look at it from
  • Not Synced
    an initiative standpoint, it makes
  • Not Synced
    a lot of sense to look for these wastes.

    But in our workplaces,
  • Not Synced
    regardless of the jobs that we do,
  • Not Synced
    we've very practiced at
  • Not Synced
    not looking for these wastes.

    The day is very long often.
  • Not Synced
    Very rarely do I hear somebody say,
  • Not Synced
    I had a great day.
  • Not Synced
    Well, the reason for that
  • Not Synced
    is all the headaches.
  • Not Synced
    All the things that you
    just observed in this process --
  • Not Synced
    you can observe these same kinds
  • Not Synced
    of wastes in any process.
  • Not Synced
    Shigeo Shingo, who was the creator
  • Not Synced
    of these seven wastes,
  • Not Synced
    or at least the first person
  • Not Synced
    to report them, said --
  • Not Synced
    -- he said it doesn't matter whether you're
  • Not Synced
    making automobiles or baking bread.
  • Not Synced
    Waste is still the same.
  • Not Synced
    Continuous improvement is not about
  • Not Synced
    the things you do well.
  • Not Synced
    That's work.
  • Not Synced
    That's what your customer is paying for.
  • Not Synced
    Continuous improvement is about
  • Not Synced
    eliminating all of the things that get in
  • Not Synced
    the way of your work every single day.
  • Not Synced
    Regardless of the job you do.
  • Not Synced
    The headaches. The problems.
  • Not Synced
    The things that slow you down.
  • Not Synced
    The things that cause you to say at
  • Not Synced
    the end of the day, I'm very tired,
  • Not Synced
    this has been a hard day.
  • Not Synced
    That's what continuous
  • Not Synced
    improvement is about.
  • Not Synced
    So why don't we stop right here
  • Not Synced
    and try to gather our thoughts
  • Not Synced
    as to what we saw in that process,
  • Not Synced
    that can be improved.
  • Not Synced
    Simple things, is what we're looking for.
  • Not Synced
    Kaizen. We're looking for the things that
  • Not Synced
    can be improved through your experience
  • Not Synced
    and common sense.
  • Not Synced
    No big machines. No innovation.
  • Not Synced
    These are improvements as well but this
  • Not Synced
    is not what we're looking for with Kaizen.

    We're looking for many small improvements.
  • Not Synced
    So what are your ideas?
  • Not Synced
    Pause the tape or DVD here to see if
  • Not Synced
    you can identify and suggest ways
  • Not Synced
    to remove the seven types of waste
  • Not Synced
    Bruce defined including motion,
  • Not Synced
    waiting, transportation, storage, defects,
  • Not Synced
    processing, and over-production.
  • Not Synced
    Okay, I'll bet by now,
  • Not Synced
    you've had a lot of ideas as to
  • Not Synced
    what can be improved in what
  • Not Synced
    we call the current condition.
  • Not Synced
    And of course, any process can be improved
  • Not Synced
    if we watch and look for the improvements
  • Not Synced
    that can be made.
  • Not Synced
    Now let's take a look and see what happened
  • Not Synced
    when my wife and I got together to make
  • Not Synced
    a better process for making toast.
  • Not Synced
    What type of toast would you like?
  • Not Synced
    Wheat.
  • Not Synced
    Okay. How many slices?
  • Not Synced
    Just one please.
  • Not Synced
    Very good.
  • Not Synced
    [Rustling noises.]
  • Not Synced
    Hmmm.
  • Not Synced
    [Whistling]
  • Not Synced
    [Clears throat.]
  • Not Synced
    That oughta do it.
  • Not Synced
    [Running water sounds]
  • Not Synced
    All set!
  • Not Synced
    Thanks dear.
  • Not Synced
    So now you see what we mean by Kaizen.
  • Not Synced
    Simple improvements with big benefits.

    And simple improvements which come from
  • Not Synced
    direct observation and from the thinking
  • Not Synced
    and knowledge of people that do the work.
  • Not Synced
    For example, moving the toaster closer to the bread.
  • Not Synced
    How many times have you
  • Not Synced
    experienced this condition?
  • Not Synced
    The work you need to do is done on
  • Not Synced
    a machine which is far away from you.

    Why is the machine there?
  • Not Synced
    Maybe that was the spot that --
  • Not Synced
    there was space on the day that
  • Not Synced
    the machine arrived.
  • Not Synced
    Or maybe that's where
  • Not Synced
    the telephone line is.
  • Not Synced
    Or where the power is.
  • Not Synced
    But does it make it easy for you to do
  • Not Synced
    the work or is it causing you to walk long
  • Not Synced
    distances back and forth between
  • Not Synced
    the two processes?
    So we focused on a simple improvement.
  • Not Synced
    We moved the machine.
  • Not Synced
    Another improvement that we made
  • Not Synced
    was to the butter.
  • Not Synced
    I know that it's necessary to butter toast,
  • Not Synced
    but nobody said
  • Not Synced
    that the butter needs to be hard as a rock.

    So we softened the butter and we put
  • Not Synced
    the butter right at the point of use as well.

    No more searching; since we don't need it in
  • Not Synced
    the refrigerator,
  • Not Synced
    we can put it right at the point of use.
  • Not Synced
    While buttering the toast is real work
  • Not Synced
    because the customer has asked for it,
  • Not Synced
    we can eliminate the Muda,
  • Not Synced
    or waste of over-processing.
  • Not Synced
    That is, putting too much
  • Not Synced
    butter on the bread.
  • Not Synced
    And at the same time,
  • Not Synced
    eliminate the strain or Muri,
  • Not Synced
    of buttering by softening the butter.

    Finally we can reduce the Mura,
  • Not Synced
    or inconsistency of the buttering process
  • Not Synced
    by making it easier to apply a standard
  • Not Synced
    and even amount of butter to the toast.
  • Not Synced
    We chose to keep the flatware where it was
  • Not Synced
    Because that was a good location for it
  • Not Synced
    for other things.
  • Not Synced
    But notice that I picked the piece of
  • Not Synced
    flatware up on the way to the process
  • Not Synced
    while asking my wife what she needed.
  • Not Synced
    I was very careful in the order of
  • Not Synced
    the process because sometimes changing
  • Not Synced
    the order of the process can make
  • Not Synced
    a big difference.
  • Not Synced
    In the first video,
  • Not Synced
    I waited a long time to start the toaster.

    In the second video, I started the toaster
  • Not Synced
    as soon as I knew what the customer wanted.

    And very importantly,
  • Not Synced
    I knew what the customer wanted.
  • Not Synced
    I knew what she wanted and
  • Not Synced
    I knew how many she wanted.

    And therefore I was able to make
  • Not Synced
    exactly what was needed. No over-production.
  • Not Synced
    In fact, I preheated the toaster
  • Not Synced
    so there would be less waiting
  • Not Synced
    for the customer.
  • Not Synced
    Now the process was long,
  • Not Synced
    it was still long,
    but I found a way to make good,
  • Not Synced
    productive use of my time that was
  • Not Synced
    balanced against the machine time.

    Too often we think that a person's time
  • Not Synced
    is the same as the machine's.
  • Not Synced
    But it's not.
  • Not Synced
    A person can do other things.
  • Not Synced
    And once I realized this,
  • Not Synced
    I was able to load the toast,
  • Not Synced
    get that toaster process going,
  • Not Synced
    and then load the dishwasher and clean up.

    And I had plenty of time.
  • Not Synced
    In fact, I was still waiting.
  • Not Synced
    I had extra time.
  • Not Synced
    So these are simple improvements
  • Not Synced
    that were made.
  • Not Synced
    You probably thought of all these as well.

    Here's an interesting aside.
  • Not Synced
    At this point, it's important to realize
  • Not Synced
    that Kaizen is small, stepwise improvement.
  • Not Synced
    We're not aiming for perfection
  • Not Synced
    in the first try.
  • Not Synced
    But for something better than we have.
  • Not Synced
    And when we get there,
  • Not Synced
    it's likely that we'll notice
  • Not Synced
    something more we can do now to
  • Not Synced
    make things even better.
  • Not Synced
    In that sense, every target condition
  • Not Synced
    immediately becomes our
  • Not Synced
    new current condition.
  • Not Synced
    As you viewed the improved condition,
  • Not Synced
    your direct observation may have uncovered
  • Not Synced
    further opportunities to reduce waste.
  • Not Synced
    What did you see?
  • Not Synced
    Did you notice a potential safety hazard
  • Not Synced
    with the location of the toaster?
  • Not Synced
    Or were you waiting for
  • Not Synced
    Bruce to wash his hands?
  • Not Synced
    Why were the dishes in the sink
  • Not Synced
    in the first place, you might ask?
  • Not Synced
    And did you observe that an operation
  • Not Synced
    was missing in the target condition?
  • Not Synced
    With Kaizen, we are always watching for
  • Not Synced
    additional improvement
  • Not Synced
    and the more eyes watching,
  • Not Synced
    the more we'll see.
  • Not Synced
    Now we've switched on that part of us
  • Not Synced
    that is going to notice waste
  • Not Synced
    and come up with small changes

    for the better. Everybody every day.
  • Not Synced
    And the most important part of this was
  • Not Synced
    that the customer was happy.
  • Not Synced
    I produced what the customer wanted.
  • Not Synced
    I made the part move faster.
    I made the job easier.
  • Not Synced
    I reduced the time between paying
  • Not Synced
    and getting paid. I reduced scrap.
  • Not Synced
    I reduced the number of steps
  • Not Synced
    that I had to take. I reduced searching.
  • Not Synced
    I made it a good day for me.
  • Not Synced
    And for the customer. This is what continuous
  • Not Synced
    improvement is all about.
  • Not Synced
    So this is my challenge to you.

    Yeah, toast is simple to make.
  • Not Synced
    Go take a look at another process.

    Go take a look at your job.
  • Not Synced
    But this time, watch
  • Not Synced
    with an eye for improvement.
  • Not Synced
    And see how many of these wastes
  • Not Synced
    you can identify and remove.
