Shingo Research Prizes

Shingo Prize recognizes six for research excellence

The Shingo research prizes for books, DVDs, or other educational materials were announced. Click on the link above for descriptions or on the links below for amazon.com links if you’re interested in buying them. Many of these books were also brought up by Jim Womack when I recorded our Podcast interview yesterday. Look for two separate Podcasts in the coming weeks.

Hoshin Kanri for the Lean Enterprise: Developing Competitive Capabilities And Managing Profit“, by Thomas Jackson.

Inside the Mind of Toyota: Management Principles for Enduring Growth“, by Satoshi Hino. Womack mentioned that this is an outstanding book, but you’ll have to read it three times to really get it.

Lean Software Strategies: Proven Techniques For Managers And Developers“, by Peter Middleton and James Sutton.

The Toyota Product Development System: Integrating People, Process And Technology“, by James Morgan and Jeff Liker

The Twi Workbook: Essential Skills for Supervisors“, by Patrick Graupp and Robert Wrona.

    I wrote this review for Tom Jackson’s book on hoshin kanri:

    Tom Jackson’s practical and valuable insights are rivaled only by the importance and benefits of applying Hoshin Kanri. Hoshin Kanri as a practice has been applied as part of lean transformation efforts for quite a long time. But there were still very limited resources for people to learn more about it. Tom’s work in this arena is extensive, and throughout all of his books (others are Implementing a Lean Management System and Corporate Diagnosis), he has focused on tools and systems for management to use in a lean company. This is the only book you’ll need – I highly recommend picking it up.

    One of the things I most appreciate about this book is how it integrates hoshin kanri with the Plan-Do-Check-Act process. This of course is the intent of hoshin kanri, but the linkage was never presented so clearly.

    Mark,

    The sixth award went to Dr. Tom Johnson’s artcle “Lean Dilemma: Choose System Principles or Management Controls – Not Both”.

    It is most definitely worth the time to read. Tom challenges some of the emerging reliance on “lean accounting” and, I believe, points out its inherent problems.

    As regards the other award winners, I’m on my 2nd cover-to-cover read of Hino’s book. As Liker notes in the foreward, it is indeed full of powerful information.

    cheers,

    Bryan
