This is a “SAMPLE” topic: The file and video downloads are free; physical delivery of microSD and print versions have fees to cover shipping and materials.

The topic covers these points:
* A “standard” is the “best we currently know “about something.
* Lean companies standardize nearly everything: work area organization, safety guidelines, parts design, and especially processes.
* The Lean way of standardizing is taking these 4 steps:
1) DECIDING the best we currently know
2) DOCUMENTING the best we currently know
3) FOLLOWING the best we currently know
4) IMPROVING the best we currently know
* Standards are important because they 1) respect people, 2) produce consistent results, and 3) capture and preserve what we learn.
* Standards DON’T turn us into robots;
when done right, standards empower us to continuously improve.
* Standards prevent process decline
* Standards define the baseline for future improvement.
* Standards lock-in our improvement progress.
* Standards assure us that our improvement ideas will be followed and make a difference
