IS “ELEVATE” THE RIGHT LEARNING PATH FOR ME?
- Are your TPM efforts moving the needle on your overall organizational goals?
- Are leaders, managers, and supervisors consistently practicing standard work?
- Are gains achieved as a result of your improvement events being s-u-s-t-a-i-n-e-d?
- Are new workplace standards being consistently and continually communicated and followed by all workers on all shifts?
- Is improvement happening organically, rather than only when an “improvement event” happens?
If you answered “YES” or “MOST OF THE TIME” to more than one of the above, or have these accomplishments under your belt as a TPM practitioner and want to see what lies next in your TPM journey, this learning path will help you learn how to elevate your TPM efforts to the next level.
