Japan Workshop Overview
- “Go to the Gemba!”
–One of the first things that the “Lean” philosophy teaches us. We all have read a lot about Lean or TPS; we have called consultants and trainers to teach us the principles, and have tried various methods and tools. This is good! But have we ever gone and seen by ourselves how TPS really works?
