Using Waste Walks to Improve Morning Routine

Lean consultant Jamie Flinchbaugh does a virtual waste walk for his routine in the morning, since it has changed a lot since COVID-19.

He goes through his routine and identifies all 7 forms of waste, such as:

  • making coffee
  • doing some reading
  • setting up his computer
  • printing files
  • managing tabs in his browser
  • preparing for the start of his work day.
