5S Manager: Countermeasure to Chaos (Colorado CoP)

Colorado Community of Practice

Want to get 5S from concept to sustained reality? Hear the story of the Denver Airport project where a labor foreman became a hands-on 5S manager focused on developing relationships with trade foremen, rolling up his sleeves to shift plans into action, and sustaining this through follow-on efforts.  Learn about the cheesy, but wildly popular Golden Dustpan Award, the one-page Trade 5S plan conversation starter, and 5S Walks, featuring a bite-size 5S class followed by real work and real action plans.  If you want 5S to be an X factor in hitting your schedules, reducing accidents, and creating harmony in your projects, attend this session.
