About This Podcast Episode

Kanban is all around us, although sometimes we don’t notice it. Its purpose is to provide a signal, in a Pull system, underpinning a just-in-time approach to work and avoiding overproduction and waste. It helps to ensure you have only what you want, only when you need it.

Join PMI Director Consultant Barry Byrne as he talks about Kanban as a crucial communication method, helping to synchronise our entire system, from the supply chain to the customer.

Support your team to get going with improvement

We know that to develop and sustain a strong continuous improvement culture, you must enable employees at all levels of the organisation to be involved in improvement initiatives.

This, of course, is more than a suggestion box scheme. To participate effectively in improvement projects and their implementation, they’ll need to share a common language and understanding of the process and tools that are being used.
