Without fail, the #1 complaint discussed about 5S is how difficult it is to sustain. In fact, many managers and companies try several times before either giving up or finally finding success. But, it doesn’t have t o be that difficult. In fact, 5S is quite easy if you follow some proven best practices. All too often, we tend to muddy the waters and over-complicate what should be a fairly straight forward process. In this Dine & Learn event, you’ll learn the 5 key steps to sustaining a 5S program including the #1 most important success tip of all.
