Cumbria Production System: Awareness Session (Cohort 56)

The Cumbria Production System is a ‘toolkit’ of tried and tested tools that can give guidance to help support your improvement work and problem solving. The toolkit brings together a number of evidence-based improvement methodologies that are being successfully used in heath and care organisations in Cumbria.

This Awareness Session is aimed at ALL health and care staff in Cumbria who would like to gain a basic understanding of improvement - no prior knowledge is required!

The purpose of this session is to give you: 

  • An overview of CLIC and how we can help
  • An introduction to continuous improvement and the Cumbria Production System 
  • Help in getting started with some improvement tools and principles
  • An opportunity to share and learn collaboratively with colleagues in health and care

You are encouraged to bring along ideas for improvements in your work area or any issues you may be having taking forward improvement initiatives. During the session, we will be asking you to try out some of the tools.


Preparation work

In preparation for the session, please complete a Waste Walk Template and bring it with you (available to download below).

How to use the template:

  • Have a look at the Waste Walk Examples (available to download below) to get some ideas
  • Choose a process to observe – at work or in your home life (at a restaurant, visiting a shop/GP practice etc.) and record the waste you see
  • You may find that some of the wastes don’t apply to what you are observing, if so, leave that section blank
  • Feel free to add a waste type that better explains your environment
  • If you feel that you want to take the next step - fill in what you think is causing the waste!


Please note that tea/coffee will be available from 12.30pm for a prompt 1pm start.
