A young employee is driven into a gate. The wall is damaged and the vehicle has been skewed. It’s pretty annoying – for all. The poor young man is sick and tired of it – and embarrassed. He does not feel that he is a success that day. The story could have ended there – perhaps after an overhaul of the employer. But because they have a Lean culture on the farm, the fault is seen as an opportunity for improvement.
We talk about why this error could happen and how to avoid it. There comes several proposals:
- Instruction and training can be done better and more intensively.
- There can be painted white stripes running front gate
- Better lighting in the barns, they must back into in.
- Felling of trees , so you can back straight.
Instead of mocking the young employee they find that if they improve conditions for all three gates , they can all save a lot of time and avoid collisions in the future. It’s Lean culture!
