Field Day

A 10-hour introduction to SUSTAINABLE Kaizen and Continuous Improvement as a culture, presented by a variety of Kaas colleagues.

Why do we offer Field Days?

We started our Field Day program with the CI team at Nordstrom in order to help their teams better understand what “good” looks and feels like. We have found that the best way for guests to truly understand Overproduction is to let them experience it in simulations first hand.

This is ideal for organizations that are serious about going through a lean transformation.


A 10-hour team building day. Each Field Day experience is custom fit for each organization. However, the typical agenda is an advanced waste tour followed by an afternoon of “hands-on” simulations. The day concludes with an application discussion with Kaas leadership.

Morning: Waste Tour with some advanced options for “frequent flyers.”

Afternoon: Hands-on simulation and direct observation experience designed to help guests better understand the benefit of moving from Batch-Push to Bit-Pull thinking. 

*Lunch is provided

What can be learned?

Guests will have the opportunity to see how visual management and daily habits create information “flow” and how these tools create the freedoms to innovate and serve our clients. Simulations are designed for guests to be able to feel the difference between good and bad work methods.

What are some normal outcomes?

Guests should leave with a clear understanding of the difference between batch and one-piece flow and tools to assess their personal work methods.
