Will your company have an active construction site, manufacturing site, office space or Big Room, near Fort Worth, Texas on Friday, Oct. 18 or know a company that will? If so, submit a Gemba Walk application below to be considered to host LCI Congress attendees at your site!
Preference will be given to:
Note: Attendees must wear closed-toe shoes. Hosts will provide PPE (personal protective equipment).
LCI Congress will end with a trip to Gemba, or the place of real work, to provide attendees with the opportunity to apply what they learn during Congress week. A Gemba Walk is a visual and purposeful walk at the source of work with a goal to see and thoroughly understand front-line work processes. Each Gemba Walk will have at least one coach with experience practicing Lean to lead the tour and facilitate discussion as well as a site point of contact to ride the bus to and from the site. Recent Gemba Walk coaches have said they benefited from the participants’ observations and suggested process improvements as much as the participants benefit from seeing and engaging in discussion!
These are the types of questions participants may ask the Gemba hosts/guides.
Call for Gemba submission deadline: April 5, 2019
Thank you for your interest in leading a Gemba Walk at 2019 LCI Congress! We hope you take advantage of this opportunity to show off your team’s hard work to a group of appreciative practitioners seeking to both learn and think critically about value-added work.
