Happy New Year
Happy New Year! Welcome to this year's first edition of our monthly newsletter, Learning to Lean. In this month's edition, we focus on a very basic and foundational lean tool, 5S.
We are offering a public lean certification program beginning in February. Click here for details. The following individual public courses may be taken separately or as part of a certificate program. We can also bring any of these courses to your facility.

5S: A Foundational Lean Tool
Many experts believe that 5S is a good way to begin a lean implementation. 5S is easy to understand and accessible to employees at all levels of an organization. A 5S program will get all employees engaged and beginning to think lean. Such lean thinking will aid in further lean transformation.
This month's edition features three articles that should help you understand more about 5S. Firstly, we give an overview of 5S. Our second article talks about the steps to 5S implementation. In our third article, we talk about sustaining a 5S program.
The materials referenced in this newsletter will teach you more about implementing lean. If you would like to learn more, feel free to call us at 866-559-5598 or visit our website and click on "Contact Us."
