Most companies start their path by performing '5S' training or organizational events or beautification because an important customer is coming.  Doing so is often followed by a failure to maintain and the reason for this is simple, 5S is not a tool but a philosophy that is based in understanding when something is not working as expected.  For example, can you walk up to a machine and within 10 seconds learn how well your machine is performing?  If not, you probably have chased 5S as a tool instead of a way.
