02 Field Day
An 8 hour team building day. The first half of the day is an advanced waste tour followed by an afternoon of "hands on" simulations. Day ends with an application discussion with Kaas leadership.
Why do we offer Field Days?
We started our Field Day program with the CI team at Nordstrom in order to help their teams better understand what "good" looks and feels like. We have found that the best way for guests to truly understand Overproduction is to let them experience it in simulations first hand.
Morning: Waste Tour with some advanced options for “frequent flyers”.
Afternoon: Hands-on simulation and direct observation experience designed to help guests better understand the benefit of moving from Batch-Push, to Bit-Pull thinking.
*Lunch is provided
What can be learned?
Guests will have the opportunity to see how visual management and daily habits create information "flow" and how these tools create the freedoms to innovate and serve our clients. Simulations are designed for guests to be able to feel the difference between good and bad work methods.
What are some normal outcomes?
Guests should leave with a clear understanding of the difference between batch and one piece flow and tools to assess their personal work methods.
