Introduction to A3
A3 Thinking is a mindset, adopted by members of an organization to create a culture of improvement, grounded in collaboration, experimentation, learning, and best practice sharing. A3 is also a structured problem-solving approach that individuals or improvement teams can apply to help address challenging problems. Lastly, A3 is a visual tool that allows individuals and teams to share important information about improvement efforts (either as a progress report or a method for capturing ideas).
