Increasing Your Productivity as an Individual Contributor

Our jobs require us to produce an outcome - tangible and intangible.  Now more than ever, it is important that we use our work hours as productively as possible, to allow us the opportunity to work on a larger variety of tasks and meet the needs of our students and stakeholders. In this class, participants learn two skills that enable them to reduce the cycle time when performing any task, process or service within the university. 

At the conclusion of the session, participants will be able to establish a:

  • 5S Project Plan - to help them organize and achieve increased productivity.
  • Spaghetti Diagram - to measure the distance and time loss in performing a task. 

These tools can increase the organization and efficiency of your workplace, resulting in higher productivity, a ‘cleaner’ workplace for enhanced safety and reduced clutter, as well as the recapture of valuable space and minimized overhead, inventory and supply costs. Continued use of these tools will transform your work environment into an always-ready environment that fosters and promotes compliance with policy and procedures and a stronger connection between you and your work environment.
