5S

posted in: Instagram 0

5s is a Japanese system for organising and managing workspaces..a bit of a Marie Kondo for workplaces if you will – although dreamt up long before Marie got in on the action. .
Based on the principles of seiri (sort) seiton (set in order) seiso (shine) seiketsu (standardise) and shitsuke (sustain), it was created by Toyota to improve efficiency and eliminate waste in production. A random fact you may not know about me is that I am a lean six sigma Green belt. This isn’t anything to do with martial arts, but is a methodology for process improvement .. this is why I can’t quite bring myself to work in a mess! I like a tidy space. I spent years working in a clean desk, 5S environment, and also had to lock everything away at the end of each day due to the nature of the documents I was working on.
Are you a tidy worker, or do you enjoy a bit of creative mess? .
