    Hey everyone,
     
    My manager would like me to spearhead a project designed to implement 5S throughout the entire company (we have 150 employees and 3 locations).  Can anyone offer insight how to do this effectively so that 1) an effective change is made and 2) the change is maintained so I don’t lose my credibility?
     
    Thanks,
    Jim

    Jim,
     
    Since you are coming here for assistance, I’m pretty sure your credibility is not as strong as you think it is or at least your judgment is questionable.
     
    Lot of good stuff on 5S in the bowels of this site, search and weed, search and weed.  Here is one I found:

    If the goal is “implement 5s”, that is a huge mistake. First ask “Why 5S?” What are the goals that are more important, for customers or staff? Also, think about whether 5S as an isolated tool is really going to be that helpful or if you should be implementing a broad set of lean tools, methods, and management practices.
