There are a lot of books that describe the Toyota Production System, but most do so in a way that implies that there was a master plan to create a company-wide improvement system. But as the pioneers in The Birth of Lean explain, there was no master plan-TPS came about through experimentation, trial and error, and an evolution of ideas that shaped Toyota's structure and management system. Through interviews and annotated talks, you will hear first-person accounts of what these innovators and problem-solvers did and why they did it. In The Birth of Lean, you'll get a glimpse inside the minds and thought processes of the system's creators and innovators: ? Taiichi Ohno-the man who envisioned a way of working that would evolve into the Toyota Production System ? Eiji Toyoda-the former Toyota President and Chairman who oversaw the development of TPS and the inclusion of TQC at Toyota ? Kikuo Suzumura-the Toyota manager recognized as the most influential in translating Ohno's ideas into actionable items ? Michikazu Tanaka-the manager and executive at Toyota affiliate Daihatsu who adapted TPS to his organization ? Kaneyoshi Kusunoki-the former head of Toyota's production engineering organization who refined the buffering system in use in Toyota's operations ? 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.
