Three Lean Quandaries

You have succeeded in implementing a working Lean system, but you are concerned with were to go next.

You may have already scheduled which elements of your business you will bring under the Lean Management system next, or have a plan for what advanced Lean methodologies you want to implement next. But you may be a bit fuzzy as to how to make these new ideas work.

Or, you may not have decided what to do next with your Lean system and are having trouble picking your next direction.

Or, you may not have even begun to use Lean, because you are not sure that the Lean process is right for your company.

Three valid quandaries that are played out many, many times each year. Three problems looking for a solution.

One solution is: Take a trip to Japan

Japan Tours

Japan is where the Lean Production system originated and it is where much of the Lean research and development is taking place. Thousands of firms and organizations in Japan representing hundreds of industries and business types are using Lean methodologies every day to deal with the same kinds of issues and problems your company is facing. Problems you hope to use Lean to solve.

Enna sponsors regular Lean Kaizen Tours to Japan which gives your business the opportunity to send an individual or a team to:

  • Visit actual Japanese businesses using Lean. The range of business types to choose from is broad enough that most companies can find a good match for their own operation. From your vantage point, you can get ideas on how to implement the next phase of Lean by watching how other companies are doing it. Or, you can see how Lean works and decide if it is the productivity method your business is looking for.
  • Engage in classroom and discussion sessions to dig deeper into specific topics related to the Lean Management System. Topics include major Lean principles as well as specific discussions of common business problems. This will allow you to both get a head start on the next phase of your Lean implementation, and get an overview on what Lean means and how it will work at your site.

Making the Trip:

Once you have made the Lean Study Mission Japan Reservations and booked your flights, most of the work is done. When you arrive in Japan, Enna will be there to help you get settled, arrange for transportation and translators, and confirm your schedule for site visits and classroom sessions.

All course materials will be provided, and Enna will assist you in getting to the visit sites.

The Enna Extra Touch

Enna has been doing these trips for some time now, and has an excellent relationship with both the Japanese Business Community and the people and organizations that are at the cutting edge of Lean development. This guarantees that your visits and classroom sessions will provide a significant return on investment in the form of:

  • New Information
  • New Ideas
  • New Skills
  • A New Vision for your Lean Implementation
