Virtual Event


This topic introduces A3 Thinking for collaborative problem solving. Participants will learn the definition of an A3, the problem solving structure with explanation of each step of the A3 format. This document is a valuable tool to define the project team (or subgroup) who will collaborate in a step-by-step process to define a problem and the background, determine the root cause, consider the possible solutions, and as a group select the most viable one.

The LCI Lean Learning Series is a facilitated discussion-oriented event focused on a specific Lean subject matter. The event is more structured than a Lean Coffee yet shorter and less structured than a LCI education course. Its purpose is to provide just enough knowledge base to kick start an engaging Lean discussion amongst the participants.

For this VIRTUAL event, we ask that everyone #turnyourcameraon and come ready to actively participate!
