MHA 505 University Of Phoenix Gemba Walk on Pfizer Report

Complete a Gemba Walk in your place of employment and document your observations. Refer to the SWOT analysis you conducted in Week Three to select the areas in need of improvement and narrow the list of places to conduct your Gemba Walk. While completing your walk, look for ways to eliminate inefficiencies, reduce waste, improve a product, or streamline a process.

Because of the current stay-at-home orders in our COVID-19 health crisis, I will allow an alternative to ensure everyone’s safety. Because of social-distancing orders, conducting a true Gemba Walk may not be possible. For some students they may be able to still conduct a Gemba walk and that is their choice. But for those who are not currently going to your place of employment every day, the alternative is to conduct an informal interview with someone who would have been involved in your Gemba walk if you had conducted one. You may interview informally via telephone, online chatting, however you see fit to gather information to write up in your paper using the headers below.

Write a 3-page report (body text, doesn’t include references) on your observations of your Gemba. Include the following in your report (headers for each section):

1) Include a summary of the organization (e.g., products or services, mission and vision)

2) Provide context (where did you focus your Gemba on and why?)

3) Discuss your Gemba observations:

4) What was the goal of your Gemba?

· Where did you go?

· What did you observe?

· Who did you observe?

· Give a preliminary analysis of your observations.

· List key takeaways.

· List three short-term opportunities and one long-term opportunity to eliminate inefficiencies, reduce waste, improve a product, or streamline a process. (You will be working with 3 of these opportunities in your week 5 assignment)

Cite any references that support your Gemba (e.g., trade or industry publications, government or agency websites, scholarly works, or other sources of similar quality).
