Conduct a Lean-focused assessment of Target Area, in a number of different categories, by completing a Self-Assessment created in Excel. The results graph (shown in a different tab) indicates the Lean maturity of the Target Area for each category. Complete this assignment as a team, and when complete upload the assessment back to the Lean Design Studio for review by your mentor.
Complete an in-depth questionnaire covering 17 different aspects of a Lean Enterprise.
Validate your Target Area choice and identify high-level areas of weakness and opportunity for improvement. Some areas may require special attention during the implementation. In rare cases the Self-Assessment will lead the team to select a new Target Area because of low level of maturity.
Your assignment for this phase is to complete this Implementation Self-Assessment as a team. You'll find a series of questions about the "Current State" of the target area that you have selected to work on. This is intended to be a back-of-the-napkin assessment, so make your way through it as a team fairly quickly. Add your project name to the Excel filename for future identification, and upload it back to the Lean Design Studio.
