Is there any waste in your process? Yes! There are 8 of them to be exact. And one way to root out the 8 Wastes is to conduct a Waste Walk. It’s a great way to introduce co-workers to “see with new eyes,” recognize the process issues all around them and start thinking about ways to get rid of unnecessary steps, activities and materials.  Tune in to this 1-hour introductory webinar to get an overview of Lean Six Sigma and the 8 wastes.

Three key learning objectives:

  1. Describe Lean and Six Sigma

  2. Recognize the 8 wastes

  3. Use a waste walk sheet
