John Shook TWI Presentation


    Presentation Link from TWI Summit

    Thanks to Blog reader Jeff for sending this along. Jeff sends glowing reports about the first ever TWI Summit that he was able to attend recently.

    The Shook presentation material is outstanding.

    I had a chance to see John present at the Global Lean Healthcare Summit. Unfortunately, John had to present via video because the U.S. government was taking too long to process the update/renewal of his passport. But, John's talk on Toyota style leadership was outstanding. I'll share some of the highlights of that soon.

    That's a whole different Lean story on the passport situation… lack of level loading (due to government deadlines and people procrastinating — not saying that's what John did) and not having enough capacity to process that many passports so quickly.

    1. Hi Mark,

      thanks a lot for the valuable information on John’s presentation:-)

      It is interesting to see that Lean is not as we all thought a Toyota kind of thing. NO, it came already -certainly under different times and circumstances- from the U.S. in the form of TWI and the ideas of Eduards Deming (PDCA-cycle).

      So we don’t have to cope with really new and unknown things but with something that already was in use (and I guess in quite a good one some sixty years ago).

      Let’s keep the ball rolling;-)
