An A3 is a great communication tool for Quick Wins. It’s a one-pager that briefly describes the presenting problem, the root cause description, the list of countermeasures and a description of the resulting benefits. This can be easily shared with colleagues and leadership. It documents improvements whether or not they are considered part of a day job. Process improvement should always be part of our day jobs!
