New Book from LEI — The Birth of Lean

3

Has anyone seen this new book from the LEI yet?

THE BIRTH OF LEAN

In The Birth of Lean, you’ll get a glimpse inside the minds and thought processes of the system’s creators and innovators:

‚Ä ¢ Taiichi Ohno—the man who envisioned a way of working that would evolve into the Toyota Production System

‚Ä ¢ Eiji Toyoda—the former Toyota President and Chairman who oversaw the development of TPS and the inclusion of TQC at Toyota

‚Ä ¢ Kikuo Suzumura—the Toyota manager recognized as the most influential in translating Ohno’s ideas into actionable items

‚Ä ¢ Michikazu Tanaka—the manager and executive at Toyota affiliate Daihatsu who adapted TPS to his organization

‚Ä ¢ Kaneyoshi Kusunoki—the former head of Toyota’s production engineering organization who refined the buffering system in use in Toyota’s operations

‚Ä ¢ Masao Nemoto—the Toyota executive central to the deployment of TQC at Toyota

In this English translation of a previously published Japanese book, you’ll hear the words of the people who created the countermeasures that Toyota devised to address issues as they arose—countermeasures that they continue to use and adapt today. By understanding that the great minds that developed such a powerful system started with simple experiments, you’ll be encouraged to begin your own experiments and transform your organization.

    I’ve seen it, but have not yet been able to peruse it as the guy I bought it with has not yet finished it. I’ll let you know when I do.

    I’m excited already. No mention of Shingo in the bullet points.

    Is that sarcastic excitement, Joe?
