Webcast: A3 Reports: Polishing the Elevator Speech

Tor Chamberlain, Engineering Manager - Global Elastics, Clopay

"So, how's your project going? Hey, I only have 10 minutes, so can you just give me a quick update? No need to spend the time on the detail, just hit the highlights..."

Sound familiar? Maybe it's time for you to use the A3 Report, a Lean tool meant to identify and communicate the critical project information and to facilitate decision-making. The A3 has been widely adopted for use in toll gate project reviews, however, expanding its functionality beyond that realm and getting Belts to internalize 'A3 thinking' can be a formidable challenge.

Join us for a free, one-hour Webcast led by Clopay's Tor Chamberlain on how his organization has made great strides in communication and transparency using the A3 Report. There's nothing scary about A3 Reports!
