Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book brings to us Taiichi Ohno's philosophy of workplace management - the thinking behind the Toyota Production System. I personally get a thrill down my spine to read these thoughts in Ohno's own words. My favorite part is his discussion of the misconceptions hidden within common sense and how management needs a revolution of awareness. " - Dr. Jeffrey Liker, Director of Japan Technology Management Program, University of Michigan and Author, The Toyota Way --Taiichi Ohno's Workplace Management

"Many lean students would want nothing more than to spend a day with Taiichi Ohno walking through their plant. This book is the closest thing we have left to that experience." - Jamie Flinchbaugh, Co-author "The Hitchhiker's Guide to Lean: Lessons from the Road" --Taiichi Ohno's Workplace Management
