Toyota A3 Report Template

Toyota Uses the A3 Report to Solve Problems and Create Problem Solvers

The A3 (11X17 paper size) and its structure create a logical improvement "story". The power is in the A3's consistent way of identifying problem and solution, and it's ability to create organizational learning. 

The A3 is deceptively simple. It's a sequence of boxes in a template. It helps people structure their problem solving:

  1. establish the business problem or issue;
  2. describe the background and current situation;
  3. identify the desired outcome and target;
  4. analyze root causes;
  5. propose countermeasures;
  6. create an action plan for getting it done;
  7. check that you've achieved the results.
