Monday Morning Message on Lean – Aug 2, 2010 – 5S Supply’s 4th Anniversary!

August 2, 2010

This is a very special occasion for us at 5S Supply. August is our fourth anniversary and we are pleased to announce that we have added more than 250 new items to our website www.5Ssupply.com!

So the quote I have chosen for this week speaks very dearly to me.

“Don’t aim for success if you want it; just do what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally.” – David Frost

As you can tell from my blog postings or if you have seen me give a presentation, I am very passionate about Lean. One of the reasons I have a devotion to Lean is because it is about making things easier. So to practice what we preach, we made our 5S Supply website easier to find the items you need and to order them.

This expansion in our catalog may seem new to you, but we knew that this day would come from our Hoshin planning that started over three years ago. We took time to find unique and innovative products and organize them in a way that would make it easy for a Lean practitioner or a Purchasing Agent to find what they are looking for by Category or by Subject.

Another feature that we have added is “How-to” videos, product videos and interviews too. We will continue to add more as we progress. Please take a look at my birthday message – 5S Supply’s 4th Anniversary.

Let us know what you think. Is there something you would like to see on our site that we don’t already have? Is there something you wish a Lean site would provide? Let us know, we want to make your Lean experience better. As with all these changes, we changed our Mission Statement –

To help organizations on their Lean journey.

We started with something longer and then we realized that why not make is Lean – clear, concise and to-the-point. We also updated our logo to include the word Lean as we expand far beyond 5S. In order to capture the spirit of this our motto is now

“Lean Simplified. Everything you need, all in one place.”

So please join us in our celebration as we will be making special announcements all month long.

Thank you for your support and may we continue to help you with your Lean initiatives. – Tony
