Using Value Stream Mapping, Lean Practitioners lead projects to eliminate process waste and improve practices. We examine how Lean tools can create process change and develop culture – and how Kano analysis helps to understand customers and design processes that are responsive to customer demand. Value Stream Mapping and Value Stream Design can create efficient processes which are correctly scaled with matching resources. Lean culture pursues Seven Wastes eradication, so we identify waste and learn to complete Gemba Walks. Finally, since Lean workplaces are visual workplaces, 5S, visual management and control are demonstrated as workplace management tools. Each day finishes with a case study of a real life lean implementation.
