DMS is a fundamental part of Lean management and stands for: Daily – every day; Management – ensuring processes are well-designed and perform as intended; Systems – interconnected and reliable practices.

This seemingly simple concept is often glossed over in organizations as nothing more than daily huddles. In reality, it’s a powerful practice that ensures processes perform as intended and barriers to performance are quickly removed.

This course breaks DMS down into four components—standard work, DMS boards and daily huddles, checking, and escalation. Instructor Jennifer Panco delves into each one, providing real-life examples and offering direction for DMS rollouts in a variety of work environments.

Each of our courses is broken into 5-10 minute lessons. The uninterrupted viewing time for this course is 73 minutes (or 1 hour and 13 minutes). We recommend you download the handouts prior to beginning the course.
