The office, by any name, is a paperwork factory. To become a Lean enterprise, office activities must fully support shop-floor manufacturing operations to eliminate waste. The adoption of 5S throughout all office functions is the first step to increase efficiency. 5S principles are dedicated to organizing the workplace, keeping it neat and clean, and maintaining the standardized conditions and discipline needed to do a good job.

This presentation provides a blueprint for building a Lean foundation for your office. You will learn how to mobilize and align your management team to launch or improve 5S in your office. The presentation covers 5S and Visual Management key concepts, best practices, step-by-step implementation guidance, and how to kick-start 5S in your organization to achieve sustainable world-class excellence.
