Gemba Walk, a Fundamental Management Ritual in the Modern Economy
Gemba is a Japanese term that means “the real place” (or “the place where value was created”). This concept refers to when your team does most of its work. For example, for manufacturing companies, the gemba is the factory.
Gemba is similar to the Japanese word “Genchi Genbutsu”. It means to go to the source.
Ongoing improvement is a fundamental element of the Lean management philosophy, whose main goal is to identify day-to-day problems and to understand, observe and improve processes. Lean and Six Sigma mean taking the time to understand the people who do the work and to observe how the process is done.
The concept was developed at Toyota by Taiichi Ohno, who, alongside Shigeo Muroi and Eiji Toyoda, developed Toyota’s management and manufacturing systems, now known as Lean Manufacturing.
Gemba walks have become a common management technique because they provide organizations with valuable information about how their operations and supply chains are performing. Regular walks help organizations identify opportunities to improve their operations.
The 3 Basic Rules of a Gemba Walk
If you want your gemba-walks to be effective, these three rules are essential.
- Check the source: see for yourself how your company’s various processes operate to determine if they are in line with company goals and standards.
- Ask “why”: you need to understand each step in detail to eliminate day-to-day problems. Many routine tasks are performed without staff questioning whether or not they are completed. Understanding the why helps you understand how to improve your processes.
- Show respect: treat people with dignity and show them that you care about their well-being. Make sure to involve your employees by letting them know that the gemba-walk is performed to make their job easier.
