David Meier’s “Favorite Mistakes” at Toyota and His Distillery

0

I don't always share new episodes of the “My Favorite Mistake” podcast with you here, but when I do… it's a Lean practitioner.

Today, that guest is David Meier, a former Toyota team member and leader, author of two books with Jeffrey Liker, and a TPS/Lean consultant. Oh, and he has a great distillery in Kentucky now called Glenn's Creek Distillery.

Here is his episode:

Toyota / Lean topics include:

  • More background about what you learned at Toyota
  • Hard for people to talk about mistakes, admitting they're human
  • Blame vs. responsibility? 
  • Toyota teaches that leaders have responsibility 
  • Blame with punishment = “accountability”?
  • Punishment replaced with learning and improvement?
  • Hard on the process, not on the people
  • Mr. Yoshino's mix up with the paint area (Episode #30)
  • My episode about the nearly lost episodes (Episode #16)
  • Mistakes made in the distillery
  • Mistakes about mistakes?

You can find a full transcript here. As a Lean student or practitioner, this episode will be right up your alley.
