Leave a comment

Learn to attack the 8th muda!

The ‘Operational Excellence’ space has been dominated for years by methods inspired by TPS (Toyota Production System) – now called ‘The Toyota Way’ – along with a few other practices. Lean was an adaption – focusing on reduction/ elimination of 7 classical wastes (Muda) of TPS. The 8th muda (that of utilized/ underutilized human capabilities) got added to the list later. However, literature provides very little help in methods of addressing this muda. IndiZEN 2014 brings to you some of the effective practices applicable in the Indian environment – learn about Kaizen Kata & Coaching Kata; TWI (Training Within Industry – JI, JM & JR modules) & Kaizen Teian.

Assess your organization’s OE maturity level!

We often wonder where do we stand in our journey of excellence. Some MNCs have developed assessment tools to compare progress against time & to compare plants with each other. We shall use a common assessment tool to permit participant companies to conduct a self-assessment in order to get a feel of where they stand w.r.t. World Class benchmarks; & to find opportunities for improvement. 


I am pleased to personally invite you to IndiZEN 2014 – the 5th National Convention on Operational Excellence to be held on 11 – 12th February 2014 at Hotel Hyatt, Pune. I am writing to help you & your colleagues with your registration for the event and to ensure that your participation is smooth and value adding.
