A3 Thinking takes a team approach. That means that individuals throughout the organization need a set of problem-solving skills that go way beyond just filling out an A3 Report. That report is meaningless if the team can't put the plan into action
A3 Thinking requires a solid infrastructure to be successful. That framework means that you have the resources to fix problems and the discipline to keep problems from recurring. Our Continuous Improvement Development System provides that framework.
A3 Thinking works best as part of a plan. Your A3 efforts should not be completed in a vacuum. Your organization should have its course charted through policy deployment, and it should be kept on track through a robust business management system. A3 Reports are tools that work best with structured leadership.

Our A3 Thinking module is designed to be an introductory class for people who will be exposed to A3 projects, who will be A3 team members, or who may be asked to support the projects. It is a quick primer, about an hour long, and gets people ramped up in a hurry.
As a leader, you can use this material to educate yourself, or you can play the videos for your team.
