At some point, you'll be ready to get your hands dirty and jump in with the group to Set things in Order. In my opinion, this is where the fun is. Tackling an area and process to make it better for the group - it doesnt get much better. However, the preparation for this step is critical to it's success. Here are some tips to make sure you're as prepared as possible:
Take plenty of before pictures
A few weeks before the scheduled event create a spaghetti diagram of the current workflow
Develop ideas on how you want to lay out the new area - what visual materials will you need?
Order your 5S and other visual supplies. You must have these prior to starting your Set In Order.
More tips to follow next week. As always feel free to chime in with any ideas or input.
