We believe there are 5 common critical components of any work and we want to help you achieve this for your business.
The organized, connected, and necessary “ways of working” (leadership, production, management) to produce the results from your work. A Work System A3 is a visual representation of how we are organized to get the work done. This visual representation displays the structure, order, flow, and the current state of work.

The act of planning and executing work that improves the results of your organization. Working “On the Business” not “In the Business”. A Work Improvement A3 is a visual representation of the current state of improvement initiatives and activities. A team will identify these steps based on the rating and opportunities gathered from the Work System A3, Work Direction A3, and current state of the Work Measurement A3, and previous Work Improvement A3’s.

Creating and maintaining a dashboard or measures to judge the performance of your work. A Work Measurement A3 creates a visual representation of the “critical few” measures for an organization, functional area, or Work System A3. This visual representation should show the current actual results over time with a trend line in comparison to the desired target. Generally, the best dashboards focus on creating balance with each other in the eyes of your customer and your organization.
