Scott Morrison Consulting Newsletter – October 2015

The Best Laid Plans…

How often have you planned to hit a deadline, and then one thing after another occurs and the deadline suddenly appears in your rear-view mirror? So it has been for me with newsletter writing! I’m going to regroup and target issuing a bi-monthly (6X/year) newsletter instead of monthly. Just like any kaizen project I facilitate, I’d rather scale back and ensure success than be too ambitious by over-promising and under-delivering.

This issue features a successful implementation of 5S at a truss manufacturer and LBM distribution center using customized schedule boards and magnet kits from QuikBoards. If you are inspired by the article to create a similar 5S schedule board and magnet system for your facility, please contact me at or call 603-491-6263.
