As a team come up with some ways you can keep focused on waste reduction, some examples are;
- Redo your waste hunt exercise monthly to identify new waste.
- Make waste a permanent agenda item at your weekly staff meetings.
- Review your systems regularly and schedule a process to do so.
- What are some others your team can think of?
Now you have been through the challenge, redo the assessment from Step 1 and see what changes have occurred.
You've successfully navigated your way through the six weeks of the Waste Hunt challenge and we're sure you'll be pleased with the positive changes.
Why not pick a new activity to focus on and start again from Step 2? You'll be amazed at how many wastes you can find all across your business.
Step 2 - Finding waste
Waste can be described as actions or activities that don't add value to the job you're doing. This step is all about finding waste.
