Success Factors and Stumbling Blocks with Global Teams
Shop Floor Board Meeting (Lean Management)
Shop floor board meetings are key elements of successful lean management principles. A shop floor approach is relevant not only for production environments, but also for laboratory owners and managers. Key questions to address are:
- What are the benefits of shop floor management for the company and the team members?
- How does a shop floor board work in practice with an international or multicultural team?
In this white paper, the practice of running a shop floor board is presented. The success factors and stumbling blocks involved in shop floor management involving international and multicultural teams are identified and discussed. Crucial factors from the literature are compared with those found in practice, via a survey of international and multicultural team members with shop floor board experience.
