Course Overview

Discover the history and motivations behind the brilliant minds that developed Lean as we know it today, and what sparked the groundbreaking Toyota Production System. This examination of historical figures begins with the Toyodas, the founders and managers of the Toyota Motor Corporation and how their support and innovation helped create the Toyota Production System – the basis for many Lean techniques.

The next key figure is Taiichi Ohno, often credited as one of grandfathers of Lean methodology. His commitment to waste elimination revolutionized the manufacturing industry and revitalized the Japanese economy. Finally, we explore Dr. Shigeo Shingo’s efforts to make all processes completely error-proof. These three Japanese industrial figures provide the cultural and historical context for your Lean journey.
