Operator Module 5 Smart Placement: The Logic, The Cloud-Be Map & The Four People Process Tools

In Module 5, operators return to the case study in order to learn what happened when that company applied Smart Placement principles and practices, including the central formula: Function + Location = Flow.

Next, they complete the set-up their second map: The Could-Be or Dream Map. This will be the tool they use for re-thinking the current layout of functions in their area, by applying to it the 14 Smart Placement Principles that they learn in the next two modules.

In the final section of Module 5, your teams learn about the Four People Process Tools that will help them keep new ideas flowing and growing—even in the face of strong and lively discussion.

The four tools are: 1) brainstorm; 2) gatekeeper; 3) talking stick; and 4) consensus. With these understandings, your group is ready to learn and apply the first set of Smart Placement principles, taught in the next module.
