09.05.16 Clive speaking at the BBG (British Business Group) Abu Dhabi this week, discussing on-line training versus traditional training methods.



Poka-yoke is the Japanese term for error proofing or mistake proofing. It was developed as a quality improvement method as part of the Toyota Production System. The principle is simple – devise systems and products in such a way that the chances of making a mistake whilst using them is reduced or completely eliminated.


We have become used to such design improvements in everyday life. We take for granted that microwaves switch off as soon as the door is opened, that plugs, USB sticks and telephone cables only fit if inserted in one way. This approach has huge potential applications for businesses to reduce the amount of human error. The principles can be applied to any process to detect or prevent defects from occurring in the first place.


The result for an organisation is less wasted energy, time and resources doing things wrong in the future. Every mistake that is spotted can be redone at a cost – but those that get through are even more costly!
