In general a Waste Walk is a structured visit to the gemba, a work cell, or a process to observe and identify waste and opportunities for improvement. The ultimate goal is to eliminate the waste or reduce the impact in areas where it can not be eliminated.


This document includes 10 Lean Wastes. I am referring to the waste walk as new because I have introduced two new wastes and added two new elements to the waste walk in order to increase the effectiveness of this tool.
