Embracing efficiency and process improvement is a big deal for companies that are – or intend to go – national or even international. When the management of the workforce calls for multiple layers of administration at various locations, getting everyone on the same page is a necessity. It is usually at this juncture that management teams consider the purchase of informational posters and stickers related to Six Sigma and 5S. Foot decals are another great means of getting employee buy-in for the management tools.
Six Sigma is a set of process improvement instruments that dates back to 1986. The ultimate goal of properly applied methodologies is excellence in all aspects of running a business. Depending on the nature of the business, this tool set incorporates anything from creating quantifiable goals to statistics-based decision making. The 5S method is similar in nature. Here, the tools focus primarily on decision making and work space organization with an eye on efficiency. Both methods are set up to allow new workers to quickly incorporate their skills for the productivity of the company.
Every management tool is only as good as the buy-in it generates from employees. Workers at all levels must understand the tools, agree to use them and apply them to daily processes and tasks. This can be a tall order, particularly when 5S or Six Sigma represents a change in management style. When an established workforce is asked to change processes and the way decisions will be made, there is some initial resistance.
In some cases, there is also a slowness to incorporate the processes. This is usually the case when management is slow to change gears. Placards, posters, stickers and similar signs have been known to help workers remember the changes and apply them. A relative newcomer in the field of stickers is the footprint decal for the floor.
