Online Meeting Challenges

No Structure

Operation team meetings typically lack structure and context. The majority of meetings waste time because they lack focus and structure to drive specific outcomes and actions.


Many teams work separately and lack good working relationships. Whether within or between teams the impact on business continuity is high (especially in today’s disruptive environment).

Overly Complex

Teams do not like complexity. Today’s workers have enough challenges already – they will not adopt software or processes that are not simple to use and tailored to their needs.

Top Down

Organizations enforce “top down” processes. Management dictates operations processes that disempower teams and stifle innovation that could otherwise be adding values to the organization.

Too Much Data

Decisions need to be made using information that is not easy to visualize. Teams need to understand ever-changing product and process data, KPIs (key performance indicators) and a myriad of reference information.

Wrong Behavior

Driving lean operations improvements requires a change in team behaviors. Traditional team interactions are not truly collaborative and often result in missed opportunities and follow up.

Lean Team Player is a solution that will:

  • Make the most of every team meeting
  • Rapidly increase team performance and efficiency
  • Easily deploy and adopt Lean principles
  • Empower teams to solve problems autonomously
  • Increase worker engagement and understanding of their roles and contributions
