A3 Problem Solving

A3 Problem Solving Defined

Most teams don’t collaborate as strategically as they could, particularly around problem solving. Meetings conclude with ideas and tasks that are half-baked, focusing on solution implementation without ever really aligning the issues around the details. With the lack of clarity, projects stall out and get reworked. Communication and efforts sag. Sound familiar?

Using the A3 problem-solving methodology provides focus to the issue and ensures consistency across problem solving or continuous improvement initiatives.
