  1. Hi,
    I just found the blog. I’m trying to develop a consulting business and I’ve just become enamored with TPS, particularly “The Toyota Way”

    I’ve been interested in complexity science for some time and have tried to explain to business friends of mine its significance to organizations and management.

    TPS and the Toyota Way give me a language and a reference point at which to explain other concepts about organizational change.

    Also, I have a potential consulting job for a logistics company heavy into six sigma with a little lean. They are looking to take it to the next level.

    I’m also very interested in hlearning about applying TPS to healthcare, as well as other areas-writing for instance.

    How do you actually post a message other than commenting on someone else’s post?

    Glad to be here look forward to learning from everyone!
