Join us for a Gemba Walk at the Crystal Clinic project in Akron, OH. The event will start with an overview of Gemba Walks, followed by a tour of the construction of the new $78 Million, 170,000 SF Surgery Center. 

A gemba walk is a visual and purposeful walk at the source of the work to thoroughly see and understand work processes and the frontline work. 

Please bring PPE (Hardhat, Safety Glasses, Face Coverings). Face coverings will be required to be worn for the duration of the event.
