EFFECTIVE 5S TRAINING AND LEAN TRAINING TO DRIVE CHANGE

Why Most 5S Training Courses Don’t Work

To achieve lasting change through 5S  or Lean you need to:

  • Align leadership behaviors with Lean Leadership principles. Ensure that the 5S and Lean initiatives align with business strategic goals.
  • Address cultural barriers in your business that prevent your people effectively adapting Lean and 5S approaches.
  • Develop the know how in your team to allow them to successfully implement Lean and 5s.

5S Training and Lean Training will help provide the know how. It will not  ensure alignment to strategy and the adoption of Lean Leadership behaviors. It will also not address the cultural barriers in your business.

At TXM we use a Lean Coaching approach to work along side your people to address all three barriers to your Lean Tranformation.

Our experienced Lean Consultants work alongside your team deliver lasting results for your business.

Ineffective 5s Training Courses Can Cost Your Business Money

Many companies have taken advantage of government subsidies to carry 5S and Lean certificate training courses. We have visited dozens of these companies and see little evidence of lasting results. Many companies think the courses are free because of the government subsides, however a typical course requires 250 hours of course and project time per person. At typical wage levels this will cost your business around $10000 for every person who completes the course. The outcome might be a certificate, but your workplace and your business will not see a return on this investment. Can your business really afford to invest this much of your people’s time in a training program that will not deliver real benefits?

Australian Government Minister Questions the Value of Subsidized Training Courses

In announcing a review in to industry training, Industry Minister, Ian MacFarlane had these words to describe the current government funded training programs delivered by many Registered Training Organisations (RTO’s):

“Scam is a strong word, but perhaps misappropriation, or less than optimised outcomes – whatever word you want to put on it, there is wastage in the system. There are ample examples of where money isn’t hitting the target. We’ve got to make sure that doesn’t happen.” – Ian MacFarlane Australian Industry Minister – February 19, 2014
