Alison Zeidman, writing for Fatherly, shares how we can use Lean and Six Sigma ideals to save time on chores and your family routines. Read my top takeaways beneath.
- Use visual signs or “kanban cards” from Lean to make clear indications of when you need to replace something, e.g. leave milk on the side when it’s finished
- Organize books, toys, and clothes by colors, type or location to streamline the tidying process for your household; visual management can make cleaning up quicker
- Take a picture of how the finished product should look; photos are a great way to communicate how rooms need to look when tidy
