Featured Topic: A3 Problem Solving

 All improvement or kaizen is problem solving.  Problem Solving is what lean thinkers do. Problem solving is about getting from the current state to the target state by identifying the key obstacles or causes that are preventing us from reaching the target condition and then identifying, testing, and implementing countermeasures to address the causes or obstacles.  Please read our article on A3 problem solving below.  The article was originally written for Med Device Magazine but can be applied to any business.
