I am always relating lessons and topics we learn in our class discussions and presentations to either my workplace or my personal life. One of my favorite things to do: video editing. I am going to apply the many process improvement techniques to my process of video editing on a weekly basis. I am going to base this off of a Summer 2021 Recap Video.
Brainstorming and Affinity Diagram: I have created sticky notes to show my brainstorming thoughts before I even start to edit the Summer Video. I organized my thoughts into categories afterwords. You want to use affinity diagramming when you are dealing with a large amount of ideas.
LEAN Methodology: A business methodology for when you want to be in a continuous process of improvement for your project or business. Lean has five different principles as shown below. I have related them to my Summer Video Project in this map.
- Identify value
- Map the Value Chain/Value Stream
- Create flow
- Let customers pull value from upstream processes
- Seek Perfection
Process Model: Companies use business process models, flow charts, and process diagrams to show the steps they want to take for a project or the steps of a customer’s journey. I have planned out the steps and the estimated time I believe it will take me to complete each step of the project. Having a plan laid out is always a solid foundation for success.
