A Glimpse of an Emerson day
Emerson is dedicated to building a culture based upon values and the needs of the marketplace. Working on developing these from a corporate perspective to a locational one.
Perf(x) (Emerson’s name for Lean) is our guide and there are many things we are working on to develop our vision and improvement path. Emerson finished a Perf(x) assessment in July/Aug and have an action plan to execute improvement. The ‘glimpse of an Emerson day’ is founded in communication and “go and see”. Although much improvement to be made in how it functions, we at least have acceptance that we are in this together and will figure it out together.
At Emerson each day begins with a GEMBA Talk that itemizes the previous day’s events and successes involving the whole plant with representatives from the finance, leadership, manufacturing, human resources, quality and warehouse. Following the talk we go for our GEMBA Walk to specific areas on the plant floor for discussion, decisions and developing leadership opportunities.
