Best Practice Work System Downloads

Here you will find a variety of best practice work system downloads that you can use right away. The free downloads are examples of content from my work experiences and workbook creation efforts. I plan to continue to add content to this page over the coming months, so please plan a return visit.

I give out these handouts when I teach a 3-day virtual TapRooT® root cause analysis course. Their goal is to help you ask better root cause analysis questions and streamline your investigation process.

Please Return for NEW Best Practice Work System Download additions!

These downloads are examples of best practice work system tools I have found and put to use over the years. My plan is to make additions to this page on at least a monthly basis.

Three Virtual Courses NOW Available on the Great Systems YouTube Channel

Additional downloads are a part of the different courses I offer at my Kaizen Learning Universe. In the near future, download options will include PDF, mp3, and mp4 content that supports each of the six different ‘Teach Your Teams’ (TYT) performance improvement workbooks. You can learn more about the workbooks and process on that resource page. Videos for the first three courses are available on the Great Systems YouTube channel.

Thanks for visiting this page on the Great Systems Best Practice Work Systems website. I plan to make the ‘Teach Your Teams’ downloads available as the 2023 progresses. The first course focuses on how to make lean tool use a daily work habit. My second course teaches leaders how to effectively pursue operational excellence. My third course looks at best practices for facilitating and leading teams.
