Although many practitioners continue to refer to the gemba as the shop floor, today's gemba has outgrown the four walls and is much bigger often extending into supply chains. In today's gemba, communication, culture and distance can become contributing factors that directly impact our processes. This presentation will highlight how to "see" these hidden sources of waste, how to include them in your continuous improvement strategy and how to adapt countermeasures that can help prevent these "invisible" sources from impacting your results. Case studies will help illustrate the application in both local and global situations. CLICK HERE to complete the session survey
