What if you could ask a former factory manager from Toyota anything about the Toyota Production System, motivating staff or managing the genba?
Join Shinka Management for this regularly-scheduled event and have your chance to ask former Toyota Factory Manager and Director Akinori Hyodo that one thing that could make the difference to your lean manufacturing journey.
This webinar discussion is run free of charge for the lean community – just register to attend and we’ll see you at our next discussion. During each event we will hear commentary from Sensei on a particular theme, prior to inviting sensei to field questions from our community.
