Gemba Academy, a leading provider of online lean and six sigma training, is offering a webinar titled "Using an Action Board to Drive Daily Team Accountability" with Steve Kane of Specialty Silicone Fabricators.
The Action Board is the center of a daily stand-up meeting and is used to drive action and accountability. It is a calendar based system that includes a review of daily metrics, problem statements and tasks due. The board fosters collaboration, ownership and team work while helping reduce task completion times. It also illustrates the workload of each member of the team, which drives allocation of resources and assists with setting priorities. The system is simple and works with or without a specified leader.
In this webinar, Steve Kane, VP Operations at Specialty Silicone Fabricators, will show how to use the Action Board to help your team get more done in less time while creating an atmosphere of cooperation.
