    It’s a great experience to take up this course during the time of work from home as an assignment by company.

    Interesting facts on how, we loose our time and energy in areas, which we never thought of.

    I have some doubts, as a matter of cost optimization, we are using common printer and scanner. If we implement a small scanner cum printer for each employees, will this have an impact in cost. How to get this problem addressed?

  6. Simple reminder
    This kind of presentation should be refreshed to senior level employees at the workplace.
    Many people doesn’t recognize these small waste in our daily life at work. They tend to disregard these items and live with them claiming that they should leave them them as they are since those are small issues only. Not knowing that those small inefficiencies affects more and results to more damaging effects.
