What’s an A3?
On a literal level, A3 refers to a ledger size piece of paper. But in the Lean Six Sigma world, it is a one-page project report. This one-pager contains:
- the problem
- the analysis of the process
- the identified root causes
- potential solutions
- action plan
…all on a large sheet of paper. The practice of using A3s forces project teams to focus their efforts while at the same time makes it easy for others to review their work.
