Summary and Info
The first step to implementing kaizen in any organization is to provide training on the Toyota Production System (TPS). This book begins with this never-before documented training material, but goes further to explain why the TPS tools, including kaizen, must work in tandem with a new way of thinking to bring about cultural change. By thinking "lean" and applying kaizen, everyone in the organization is empowered to eliminate waste, in all of its forms, at all levels, all the time. Flexibility, simplicity and the quest for constant improvement become the driving goals. Revised and expanded in its Fifth Edition, this book has seen use in many industries for wide-ranging applications. It provides workers at all levels of an organization with a how-to guide for planning, organizing, and implementing kaizen events in any setting. Its hands-on presentation, complete with reusable charts and forms, will bring a level of competence and understanding to event teams and participants as they become self-sufficient in the application and use of kaizen.
