New Shingo Book out Nov 1

Kaizen & the Art of Creative Thinking: Enna

I just had a nice conversation with Norman Bodek, which I’ll be turning into a series of Podcast episodes as time allows.

One exciting tidbit he shared with me is the publication of a previously-unpublished (in English, anyway) a new Shingo book. Norman was involved in the selection and the translation of the book, which is focused on identifying problems and problem solving.

From the publisher’s website:

Kaizen and the Art of Creative Thinking is a newly discovered classic from Dr. Shigeo Shingo, the original Lean Manufacturing genius. Never before published in English, Kaizen and the Art of Creative Thinking provides the single most important tool for initiating a Lean transformation, Dr. Shingo’s own Scientific Thinking Mechanism. For the first time ever, you have access to Toyota’s secret model of success; learn how to dissect the status quo so you can address the actual problem, generate innovative ideas in group environments, and learn the best way to implement solutions. This book unlocks the secret to managing creative thinking.

I don’t see it on, so you have to get it through the website (link at the top of this post).
