Practical Approach

 Many companies today are implementing 5S as part of their Lean initiatives to reduce cost and improve efficiency.   

 If your company is considering implementing a 5S program you will need a plan. To improve your chance of success you will require a clear direction with well thought out goals and objectives. 

  Implementing any new business program without defining clear objectives, specific directions and preparing a plan of action is like going on trip with no idea of where you’re going or how you are going to get there. You are likely to get nowhere fast.
