    Collaborwocky 008 - A3 Strategic Thinking

    Collaborwocky 008 - A3 Strategic Thinking

    In the world of continuous improvement, A3 thinking is a powerful tool that transcends its traditional application in operational problem-solving. Originating at Toyota, the A3 process involves using a single sheet of paper (typically A3 size or 11 by 17 inches) to define a problem, analyze its root causes, propose solutions, and conduct experiments. While it’s commonly used for operational issues, we often overlook its potential for strategic alignment.
