Who wouldn’t
love a job in a
chocolate
factory?
Mean boss lady: This is your
last chance.
Let a single chocolate go by
unwrapped and you’re fired!
Chocolates will arrive
through this window
Wrap them and
send them out
through that
window. GO!
It starts out OK
But go south pretty quickly
Which they struggle to cover up
because they are AFRAID
Boss: Looks fine here – lets speed
it up!
Oh
Ethel, w
hat are
we
gonna
do
now?
Theobromine
#FAIL
What if….
Customers like
their chocolate
boxes to be
beautiful. You’ll
wrap the
chocolates so
the boxers can
pack beautiful
boxes
I’ll show you how to wrap a chocolate in
three moves. Check it out. Any
questions?
Make sure to introduce yourselves to
the kitchen team and work out the best
way to manage the pace
The people in the boxing room depend on you. Make
sure you talk to each other constantly to ensure we are
making gorgeous ...
Boss: How are you doing in here – the
kitchen is ready to speed up – can you
handle it?
“We had a big order come in – do you think
you and the other teams can find a way to
speed up so we make it in time?
