Today’s manufacturing plants are busy places. While the factory has always been home to long hours and hard work, it certainly seems like the pressure has been turned up a notch or two over the years. The Lean Manufacturing journey can and will improve your operation yet time is still a factor. Training and development often suffer when it’s crunch time.
Terry Starbucker notes that time is a hindrance for training in many businesses when he states, “Sometimes it’s hard to get their full attention for 10 minutes, much less the time it would take to do a full-scale training session.” Terry compiled a list of 6 time-tested, quick hitting one line lessons that he has used to develop his team even in the busiest of times.

We are exploring how Terry Starbuckers 6 Quick Hitting One-Line Lessons can be applied in your Lean world. I recommend you check it out here today.
