Event Details

This is a past event.

Countermeasures are the actions we take during experiments to close the gap between what is currently happening and what we want to happen. We develop countermeasures to address root causes during the Plan phase of the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle, then implement them in the Do phase. In this course, we’ll explore several Lean methods and tools that are used as countermeasures for common workplace problems, and explain the principles behind them. After this class, you’ll have a better understanding of: 5S, Kanban, Standard Work, Andon, and Poka Yoke (error proofing)

This course will be taught virtually using Zoom and Miro. There will be a brief pre-work assignment before the workshop, and you'll receive a certificate after completing a post-work assignment.

This workshop is part of the Lean Basics workshop series. If you complete all five workshops in the series, we’ll award you a Lean White Belt certificate! For more information, email
