Gemba walk - where it happens

A "Gemba Walk" is the manufacturing term for the leadership at a factory walking on the plant floor.

The translation of gemba (from Japanese) is essentially "the real place" or "the place where it happens".

Embrace the auto-play of the Hamilton soundtrack in your head and take a walk around the entire floor when you arrive to the studio and before you leave. It makes problems stand out and gives you a sense for how everything is running. Even if you're the only one that works in your studio, there are often visual cues that will remind you of something you'd ordinarily forget, such as cleanup activities.
