Benchmark Tours: A journey to discover real kaizen

Leave a comment

The benchmark tours is an integral part of the Continual Improvement journey of any organization committed to excellence. Teams are motivated by visiting world class companies and seeing best practices. The host companies are often honored with awards in their respective sectors by various bodies. These tours offer a “behind the scenes” view into the operational, management and people development aspects of the tour partner’s company.



Two themes that will be integral to Operational Excellence in the near future are – Lean and Green. Both are focused on reducing/ eliminating waste – while Lean focuses on the classical eight wastes (muda), Green focuses on five environmental wastes (hazards).

Tour Features & Highlights

These benchmark tours are tailored for each group and are designed with a specific objective in mind.  Typical tours focus on:

  • Value Stream Mapping
  • Employee Empowerment/Engagement
  • Waste Identification
