5S and Visual Management Training Module

See Where This Training Module Fits Into Our 35 Class Catalog

5S is a means of organizing and maintaining a workspace to promote effective operations. This level of organization allows visual management, which is the practice of making conditions in a workplace obvious so problems and opportunities can be immediately addressed.

When it is time to learn about this concept, not all Lean training is created equal. Ours stands apart because of its deep integration with our Lean training system. Don’t settle for just a 5S PowerPoint presentation. Add a student guide, a Lean Lego training exercise, a free 14-page 5S Lean Term on PDF, and even a DVD of our 5S PowerPoint training in action. Plus, combine it with other modules (topics) to build a comprehensive Lean training capability. (TIP: Get the best values on this training by buying it as part of a bundle.)

Our 5S Lean Training (with Visual Management):

    Covers the concept of 5S and how to implement visual controls
  • Shows teams how to organize their workspace to be more effective
  • Saves trainers time by giving them materials they can use in their entirety or to add to existing training programs
  • Can be edited and modified for use throughout a company with our corporate license
  • Uses both office and shop floor examples to make it applicable throughout an organization

Lean Training System Components

What do our PowerPoint training packages offer?

  • Flexibility: Our training packages come with a liberal corporate license so you can use them in a way that makes sense for you. Plus the PowerPoint 2007 format lets you make changes. Use the whole package, or just the slides you need. Leave the slides the way they are, or change the look or the content. It’s up to you.
  • Engaging Training: We make use of visuals, humor, animations, and whatever else we can think of to keep the audience’s interest. It your trainees aren’t interested, they won’t learn.
  • Value: We keep our production costs down so you can get a lot of great training at a low price. You’d be hard pressed to find more for your money. Even the free stuff you can find online is not a better value if you have to spend a lot of time changing things, or if it isn’t in a format that suits your needs. Compare the cost of a few hours of your time changing “free” training to the cost of ours.
  • Consistent Look and Feel: Because we offer a wide range of training topics that is always growing, you won’t be presenting a mish-mash of training packages to your team.
  • Comprehensive Training: Not only do we offer many different training topics, we also have student guides, leader’s guides, and/or exercises to go with many of our packages.
  • Modularity: We don’t expect that one training package will have exactly the topics you need in it. So we design our training packages in small modules that you can put together however you like. Don’t buy what you don’t need. Just another way we try to add value to your training dollar.
  • Online Resources: No training package can give your students everything they need in a short session. That’s why we offer an impressive range of online resources to augment the classroom training you deliver. Who else backs their training with as much free information that your trainees can instantly access as we do?
  • Credibility: Our online tool, the Continuous Improvement Companion won the Apex Award in 2009 when it was launched, and Whaddaya Mean I Gotta Be Lean? was a finalist for the 2009 National Best Books Award. We know what we are talking about, and we know how to write it down in a way that is clear and effective.
  • Training and Consulting Help: Whether you want someone to deliver the training for you, show you how to do it, or help you implement the lessons, we can support you with our Lean Training and Lean Consulting services.

Our corporate licenses for the videos in our Lean Training System open up new opportunities for companies that want more extensive access to multimedia content than DVDs can provide.

This format allows a reporting unit of a company to post a copy of this video on its network to allow people throughout the organization to view it. It is licensed to a single ‘reporting unit’ of the company named in the ‘Ship To’ address of the sales receipt. As a rule of thumb, this normally means one license per president (i.e. holding companies, conglomerates, multi-nationals, etc. will need a license for each separate unit.) Standard corporate licenses are limited to organizations with fewer than 20,000 people.

5S and Visual Management Student Guide

An organized, effective work area is a building block of a productive, satisfied team. In addition to making tasks quicker, having right what you need, right where you need it reduces the frustrations that can sap morale. Few tools have such a positive impact on both a team and on the bottom line.

Plus, the classes make it easy to follow along. Embedded in the slides are icons that link to the pages of the student guide.
