Safety Gemba Walk App 1

Management by walking around is one of the most effective methods of understanding daily work challenges and opportunities. A key activity used for lean and six sigma, Gemba walks are a powerful tool for continuous improvement because they take you to the heart of the action and are part of Kaizen, Lean and other methodologies.

Gemba Walks

It's hard to see the problems that exist on your factory floor when you're sitting 10 floors away in a conference room. Gemba walk checklists are used by executives or managers in performing "Gemba walks" around the workplace. The mission of Gemba walks is to identify problem areas in production, business processes, work areas, safety, etc., and begin work to remediate issues. Managers can then assign action items and measure progress over time.

Gemba - A Japanese Term meaning "Go see, ask why, show respect"
