Process Improvement Tools

are part of the answer for these questions

Process Improvement Tools

are a big part of the answer
for these questions

How can we standardize?

If standardization is a foundational principle of process improvement,

then why not use standardized, consistent tools for process improvement?

How can we learn faster?

When we learn how to find help & training for one Systems2win tool, we know how to find help & training for all 150+ templates.

How can we remember?

Now that the consultants are gone...

What were those instructions
for how to use this tool again?

How to reduce training costs?

How much would it cost to bring those consultants back again?

and again... and again...

Wouldn't it be nice to have online training and videos? And free live training every month?

How to deploy globally?

Wow... we can click a button to switch between Chinese, German, Spanish, French, Arabic, or Portuguese language translations?

And my homemade template didn't work in German Excel on Chinese Windows. Systems2win does.

How to have version control?

Jack's using the new version of our template.
Jill's using the old one. Jane made her own.

Systems2win can sync our master templates so everyone is using the same version.

How to make our tools our own?

We can use everything we know about familiar Excel to make our templates our own.

Every time we upgrade, Systems2win automatically finds and transfers OUR personalizations!


Some of our people aren't so good with math.

Our templates already have most math programmed for us, and we can use everything we know about familiar Excel to add our own lean metrics.

Who will support our CI tools?

That download doesn't have support.
Who will support this when Jim retires?

Who can call when we get stuck?

Process Improvement Tools

are only part of the answer
for these questions

How to improve deliverability?

When competitors win customers with faster delivery, lean tools become very interesting.

It is even more important, however, to truly understand the lean principles that underlie every lean tool.

How to improve reliability?

When we experience a quality crisis, then
Six Sigma tools quickly rise up the priority list.

And you must know how and when to use them.

How to reduce costs?

Although process improvement will reduce costs, that should not be our reason for starting.

Please do not mislabel a desperate head count reduction program as "lean". If your leaders can't commit to a Job Security Promise, then it's not lean.

Lean transformation?

Before asking "How?", first ask, "Should we?"

Lean transformation is not for everyone.

Where to start? What next?

Paradox: Although it's purpose is to answer those questions, Hoshin Planning itself is not the place to start.

It's never too soon to start Value Stream Mapping, but an experienced facilitator is really helpful at first.

How can CI be affordable?

One idea would be to force allow your people to scrounge or invent their own tools.

Once you begin to experience the costs of "free" tools, come see what Systems2win offers.

How can we save time doing CI?

How much are you paying your lean leaders and consultants to try to re-invent inferior tools?

How to engage our people?

Lean flow isn't just about the flow of product.
It is also about mental flow.

Studies show that people are measurably happier working in a lean environment.

How to coach our leaders?

Although your Systems2win templates support many diverse Lean Management Systems,

the truth always remains that a tool is just a tool unless you use it.

Which comes first?

Lean culture? or lean systems?

Maybe a better question might be:

Without lean tools and systems,
how is our lean culture going to stick?

Who uses process improvement templates?

If you are just looking for a few tools to make your job easier

Tool Selection Matrix Excel template for process improvement tools

Tool Selection Matrix

then find and open your Tool Selection Matrix,

and use it to narrow down your choices to the few process improvement tools that are most likely to help you with your current priority,

which might be 5S, Standard Work, flow charts, FMEA, root cause analysis, problem solving, decision making, or whatever priorities are currently at the top of your list for continuous process improvement.

If you are a leader in a lean enterprise

then you will appreciate your new ability to deploy
consistent continuous improvement tools and systems throughout your wide-spread enterprise.

Let some of our customers
introduce you to their
Systems2win templates

As the leader, you know that it is ultimately your responsibility
to empower your people with your chosen tools and systems
for your organization's lean transformation.

If you are a lean consultant

then you want to empower your clients
with teachable, repeatable tools and systems

to free you to resume your place in front of their lean parade
to lead them around each next corner of their lean journey.
