Hi, I’m Anthony Clyne, Welcome to this TXM Process Overview
Keep watching and learn how Solving Problems Every Day will give your business a competitive advantage.
At the core of the TXM solving problems every day system is the magnetic concern strip.
Concern strips help create Plan-Do-Check-Act thinking every day.
The challenge is to solve small problems and eliminate wasted time and effort.
This wasted time and effort amounts to valuable minutes and often hours for every person, every day.
We all know that solving problems is at the core of lean thinking.
However, providing the forum, and maintaining the daily discipline of solving problems in a structured way is really hard.
Team leaders, supervisors, and managers need support and coaching.
Looks easy, looks simple, but the self discipline required can be tough.
TXM Solving Problems Every Day approach provides system, support, and coaching to turn problem solving into a daily habit.
Go online to the TXM store and get some concern strips. Start with just ten strips. Attend your short team meeting every day, and coach the team to solve their problems using the concern strips.
The suggestions, ideas, and solved problems will surprise you. Employees will become actively engaged. Future leaders will be developed. Managers will be freed up from day to day fire fighting to become thought leaders.
In an office, a service, a workshop, or a factory, the concern strips develop a lean thinking culture.
A problem shared is 10 problems solved.
