The question is, how do we go about creating standards and Standard Work? Are there prerequisites? The short answer is yes.
There are most definitely prerequisites that shouldn’t be ignored prior to creating and implementing Standard Work. As such, in this podcast we explore 5 specific prerequisites that should be in place if we hope to succeed with standard work.
Now, as we mention in the podcast, we don’t need to wait to perfect these prerequisites before attempting to standardize. In fact, waiting for all 5 prerequisites to be perfect, which of course they never will be, could be used as an excuse to never start!
