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.

Root Cause Analysis Investigation Support Handouts

How to Change Work Culture Book Sample

2022 GS Personal Kaizen Operational Excellence Certificate Process

These downloads are examples of best practice work system tools I have found and put to use over the years. Please email me at if you have a specific tool or challenge in mind. I have many more resources than I post at any given time.

Additional downloads will be part of the different courses offered in the Great Systems Learning Lab. Download options include PDF, mp3, and mp4 content that supports each of the six different ‘Teach It Yourself’ (TIY) training workbooks. You can learn more about the workbooks and process on that resource page.

Thanks for visiting this page on the Great Systems Best Practice Work Systems website. I will begin making the ‘Teach It Yourself’ downloads available by the end of 2022. The first two courses focus on how to make lean tool use a daily work habit and how to effectively pursue operational excellence.

Do you have an immediate work systems improvement question or need? If so, please email me at! Keep improving!
