What's on your Team Board?
Your team's 5S Scorecard is commonly in the 'Safety' column of your SQDC Board, because Safety permeates every one of the 5 S's.
Being uncluttered, clean, organized, and doing things in standardized ways, sustained over time... all of those are essential for a safe working environment.
The 'Quality' column of your SQDC Board usually has a few of the 7 Basic Tools of Quality. But there's not room for all 7 of them. Might now (new year's) be a good time to reconsider your choices of what to measure?
And perhaps even reconsider the tools that you use to select what to measure?
Delivery and Cost
In these columns, you will most commonly use your Trend Analysis Scorecard, Run Chart, and/or Histogram templates, but those are focused primarily on results.
Or maybe your team might start a (temporary project) team board for one of the Problem Solving Methods - such as A3, Kata, or Kaizen.
Beyond the Team Board
Your Team Huddle Board is the ideal meeting place for your daily stand-up meetings, but some things benefit from being measured more than once a day.
Perhaps 2019 might the year that your team completes the single most important phase of your lean journey...
by implementing visual controls...
so that anyone walking past your work areas can quickly glance at your visual controls and know whether or not things are flowing as expected, or whether your area is experiencing flow blockages that deserve swarming attention to quickly get you back into the rhythm of your takt time.
In addition to your 150+ templates for process improvement, your teams might also benefit from cost-effective team training, or on site coaching.
