The 2012 Muda Walk for a Month is Coming

The 6th Annual Muda Walk for a Month is coming this September.

A basic principle of Lean is “Go and See”. We all know this, but don’t practice it enough. The Muda Walk for a Month is a unique opportunity to do put “Go & See” into practice. During September I will email participants the weekly theme to use while doing a Muda (waste) walk in their company. The walk may be at a job site, in the shop, office or even a service truck. During the walk, participants will look for ways to eliminate waste and improve operations. The Muda Walk challenge is to do a walk at least one hour a week and best if it is one hour each day. That may sound like a hard commitment to make, but those who invested the time in past years have reaped useful rewards. I do ask that participants log problems and improvements, and share them with me at the end of the month.
