Hosted by Gwendolyn D. Galsworth, Ph.D.
What is the big deal in S1 anyway? What is hard about getting rid of junk? Why do so many companies fail at S1? Why are so many value-add associates disappointed? Where and why does this well-intentioned corporate initiative go off the rails? Listen as Gwendolyn Galsworth, your host and leading visual workplace expert, answers these questions and more. Learn the three premises for S1 success. Hear about the real meaning of S1 and why so much is at stake when so-called junk is removed in the name of 5S. Understand why S1 is the stepping stone to an empowered work culture and to a new kind of improvement leadership. Hear how most companies, in their rush to just do it, miss golden opportunities to use S1 to re-frame and re-invent the work culture. Even if you have been engaged in 5S for years, tune in and learn how to re-invigorate your current approach and go even further. Learn to use 5S to build operator-led visuality. Call in and share your experiences, your stories, your questions.
