Awards for 5S improvement are a simple, fun way to keep the momentum moving forward. Below are 6 ideas received from some of our members:


- golden broom called "The Clean Sweep" award


- on the production floor a company used a "Golden Hairnet" award


- a Lean Points system where wor centers earned points for 5s, VSM'S, Kaizens, etc - the team with the most points got a coveted trophy and a pizza lunch


- Boeing used a crystal war fighter rather than a cleanliness award since they want focus on their standard processes and not just being clean


- a ball valve manufacturer built a ball valve trophy for the workcell that removed the most barriers to  flow


- one piece of feedback that I received was to make the trophy a company icon rather than something you buy.
