Genba is a Japanese word widely-used in lean manufacturing and in particular, the Toyota Flow System. GENBA refers to the place where value is created, and the “Genba Walk” invites people to stand back from their day-to-day task to observe what can be improved.
SenseMaker® Genba draws inspiration from this concept when developing our peer-to-peer journalling tool. Learn from others, and reflect on your own journey with a searchable database of your journal entries. If you’re in charge of a cohort, gain insights into how they’re feeling with pre-defined degrees of anonymity. It’s a much more sophisticated way of measuring impact and progress – just like Genba, you’ll be walking and understanding your system on the ground, with no intermediation.
