Learn to attack the 8th Muda!

The ‘Operational Excellence’ space has been dominated for years by methods inspired by TPS (Toyota Production System) – now called ‘The Toyota Way’ – along with a few other practices. Lean was an adaption – focusing on reduction/ elimination of 7 classical wastes (Muda) of TPS. The 8th muda (that of utilized/ underutilized human capabilities) got added to the list later. However, literature provides very little help in methods of addressing this muda.

Assess your organization’s OE maturity level! 

We often wonder where do we stand in our journey of excellence. Some MNCs have developed assessment tools to compare progress against time & to compare plants with each other. We shall use a common assessment tool to permit participant companies to conduct a self-assessment in order to get a feel of where they stand w.r.t. World Class benchmarks; & to find opportunities for improvement. 

IndiZEN 2014 – the 5th National Convention on Operational Excellence will give you an opportunity to get the answer of all such questions. It is going to be held on 11 – 12th February 2014 at Hotel Hyatt, Pune, India. This event will also give you an opportunity to learn some of the effective practices applicable in the Indian environment – learn about KAIZEN™ Kata & Coaching Kata; TWI (Training Within Industry – JI, JM & JR modules) & KAIZEN™ Teian.

IndiZEN has become one of India’s significant annual gatherings of practitioners, who come together to Learn, Network, Celebrate & Share the work done by their organisations in implementation of Kaizen/ Lean/ Operational Excellence in their respective workplaces.
