Opportunities for improvement are identified by first understanding what’s happening in the process.

To do this, consider the 8 Wastesremember the DOWNTIME memory aid? Defects, Overproduction, Waiting, Non-Utilized Talent, Transportation, Inventory, Motion, Extra Processing—you can find a lot of examples in nearly any process, but then consider which ones make the most significant difference. Next, understand the causes underlying these issues to help you develop Quick Win improvements.

Also, maybe there’s a lot of clutter in your process, making it difficult to find what you need and get the work done. You might need to implement 5S, which can clean up a disorganized workspace and make it more intuitive, increasing productivity while reducing effort. The Quick Win project identifies fast and easy ways to reduce waste and better organize your process.
