Book Summary :

The Missing Link to Toyota-Style Success—LEAN LEADERSHIP Winner of the 2012 Shingo Research and Professional Publications Award “This great book reveals the secret ingredient to lean success: lean leadership. Not only is it a pleasure to read, but it is also deep and enlightening. This book is an absolute must-read for anyone interested in lean: it’s both an eye opener and a game changer.” —Michael Ballé, Ph.D., coauthor of The Gold Mine and The Lean Manager “This will immediately be recognized as the most important book ever published to understand and guide ‘True North Lean’ and the goal of perpetual business excellence.” —Ross E. Robson, President and CEO, DnR Lean, LLC, and the original Director of The Shingo Prize “An excellent book that will shape leadership development for decades to come.” —Karen Martin, Principal, Karen Martin & Associates, and author of The Kaizen Event Planner About the Book: TOYOTA. The name signifies greatness— world-class cars and game-changing business thinking. One key to the Toyota Motor Company’s unprecedented success is its famous production system and its lesser-known product development program. These strategies consider the end user at every turn and have become the model for the global lean business movement. All too often, organizations adopting lean miss the most critical ingredient—lean leadership. Toyota makes enormous investments in carefully selecting and intensively developing leaders who fit its unique philosophy and culture. Thanks to the company’s lean leadership approach, explains Toyota Way author Jeffrey Liker and former Toyota executive Gary Convis, the celebrated carmaker has set into motion a drive for continuous improvement at all levels of its business. This has allowed for: Constant growth: Toyota increased profitability for 58 consecutive years—slowing down only in the face of 2008’s worldwide financial difficulties, the recall crisis, and the worst Japanese earthquake of the century. Unstoppable inventiveness: Toyota’s approach to innovative thinking and problem solving has resulted in top industry ratings and incredible customer satisfaction, while allowing the company to weather these three crises in rapid succession and to come out stronger. Strong branding and respect: Toyota’s reputation was instrumental in the company’s ability to withstand the recalls-driven media storm of 2010. But what looked to some to be a sinking ship is once again running under a full head of steam. Perhaps the Toyota culture had weakened, but lean leadership was the beacon that showed the way back. In fact, writes Liker, the company is “as good and perhaps a better model for lean leadership than it ever has been.” of innovation and growth. Yet, Industry Week reports that just 2 percent of companies using lean processes can likewise claim to have had long-term success. What the other 98 percent lack is unified leadership with a common method and philosophy. If you want to get lean, you have to take it to the leadership level. The Toyota Way to Lean Leadership shows you how.

Book Summary :

Edizione arricchita con casi di aziende italiane che hanno applicato i principi della Lean Leadership. La produzione Lean è alla base di alcune fra le maggiori storie di successo del business odierno. Ma perché limitarsi al solo aspetto della produzione quando si può estendere il Lean a tutta l'azienda? L'ingrediente non troppo segreto è la Lean Leadership. In questo nuovo e importante titolo della serie "Toyota Way", gli autori spiegano in che modo è possibile che i dipendenti siano sempre attenti a seguire la mission aziendale. Toyota Way per la Lean Leadership è il testo ideale se volete raggiungere l’eccellenza operativa e mantenere lo slancio per rimanere sempre davanti alla concorrenza sul lungo periodo. TOYOTA. Il nome è sinonimo di eccellenza: auto di classe e business thinking in grado di cambiare completamente le regole del gioco. Uno dei fondamenti del successo senza precedenti di Toyota è il suo celeberrimo sistema di produzione e il suo meno noto programma di sviluppo dei prodotti. Entrambe queste strategie tengono sempre presente, in ogni momento, l’utente finale e sono divenute il modello di tutto il movimento globale del business Lean. Fin troppo spesso le aziende che adottano il Lean dimenticano di adottarne l’ingrediente più critico: la Lean Leadership. Toyota fa enormi investimenti per selezionare con attenzione e formare leader che si adattino perfettamente alla propria filosofia e cultura. In questo modo è riuscita a ottenere: crescita costante, aumento dei profitti per 58 anni consecutivi, rallentando solamente quando ha dovuto affrontare le difficoltà finanziarie del 2008, la crisi dei richiami e il peggior terremoto giapponese del secolo; creatività inarrestabile, l’approccio al pensiero e al problem solving innovativi ha portato a un rating aziendale molto elevato e a un’incredibile customer satisfaction, consentendole di superare le tre crisi presentatesi in rapida successione e di uscirne rafforzata; branding forte e rispetto, la reputazione del brand è stata fondamentale per fare in modo che l’azienda riuscisse a riprendersi rapidamente dalla crisi dei richiami del 2010, una vera e propria tempesta mediatica. E quale tempesta! Ma quella che sembrava una nave in procinto di affondare naviga oggi nuovamente a tutto vapore. Forse la cultura Toyota ne era risultata indebolita, ma la Lean Leadership è stata il faro che ha mostrato quale fosse la via giusta per tornare agli splendori di un tempo.

Book Summary :

Building upon the international bestselling Toyota Way series of books by Jeffrey Liker, The Toyota Way to Continuous Improvement looks critically at lean deployments and identifies the root causes of why most of them fail. The book is organized into three major sections outlining: Why it is critical to go beyond implementing lean tools and, instead, build a culture of continuous improvement that connects operational excellence to business strategy Case studies from seven unique industries written from the perspective of the sensei (teacher) who led the lean transformation Lessons about transforming your own vision of an ideal organization into reality Section One: Using the Plan-Do-Check-Adjust (PDCA) methodology, Liker and Franz contrast true PDCA thinking to that of the popular, superficial approach of copying "lean solutions." They describe the importance of developing people and show how the Toyota Way principles support and drive continuous improvement. Explaining how lean systems and processes start with a purpose that provides a true north direction for all activities, they wrap up this section by examining the glaring differences between building a system of people, processes, and problem- solving that is truly lean versus that of simply trying to "lean out" a process. Section Two: This section brings together seven case studies as told by the sensei who led the transformation efforts. The companies range from traditional manufacturers, overhaul and maintenance of submarines, nuclear fuel rod production, health care providers, pathology labs, and product development. Each of these industries is different but the approaches used were remarkably similar. Section Three: Beginning with a composite story describing a company in its early days of lean implementation, this section describes what went right and wrong during the initial implementation efforts. The authors bring to light some of the difficulties the sensei faces, such as bureaucracies, closed-minded mechanical thinking, and the challenges of developing lean coaches who can facilitate real change. They address the question: Which is better, slow and deep organic deployment or fast and broad mechanistic deployment? The answer may surprise you. The book ends with a discussion on how to make continuous improvement a way of life at your company and the role of leadership in any lean transformation. The Toyota Way to Continuous Improvement is required reading for anyone seeking to transcend his or her tools-based approach and truly embrace a culture of continuous improvement.

Book Summary :

Lean transformation mean different things to different companies, consulting firms, and even "thought leaders." Some view lean as a toolkit to eliminate waste to be implemented mechanically as one would install software on a computer. The authors of this book view it as a process of engaging people throughout the organization in a new way of managing to deliver exceptional customer value. Those who have been in the trenches often feel like it is the front lines of a civil war between different factions with different points of view. The best way to experience this social and political process, short of living it, is through a good business novel. In this book, Franz and Liker immerse you in a world where you can begin to learn the basics by walking with the people at Amalgamated and Shiloh as they grapple with the challenges, trials, and tribulations surrounding lean as well as business transformation in general. This in-depth case study was built on a collective sixty years of up close, in depth experiences from both Franz and Liker as they've worked with companies around the globe in their transformation efforts. As you will learn in Trenches, this is a full-contact sport. You'll probably see some aspects of yourself and your company in these pages. The companies live through distinct phases of lean transformation, not unlike what many companies experience. There is a honeymoon period with an experienced lean coach who guides Amalgamated through a deep transformation of one area of their plant with stunning results. Those involved in the transformation learn to see the transformation as systemic focused on improved processes and development of people. They grow and blossom. Then just as they are preparing to spread this profound knowledge they are merged with Shiloh and their mechanistic-oriented lean black belts take over virtually destroying what Amalgamated started. As the company performance plummets new leadership emerges and a new, deeper approach to developing people is introduced-Toyota kata. Leaders learn practice routines to develop a true kaizen mindset. Regardless of where you are in your own journey, this book is written to give you support where and when you need it and to offer a glimpse into an organization as it struggles, falls, gets up again and keeps on trying. It does this because, as we always say, that's how you learn on your journey.

Book Summary :

In The Toyota Way to Lean Leadership, maken Jeffrey Liker en Toyota veteraan Gary Convis voor het eerst inzichtelijk wat het succes is van Toyota's ontwikkelingsproces voor leidinggevenden. Door dit proces ontwikkelen ze leiders die de waarden van de organisatie leven, de organisatie continu verbeteren en aanpassen aan de veranderende omstandigheden. Toyota leiders beschikken over een basisset aan vaardigheden gericht op de juiste manier van verbeteren. Daarbij maakt het niet uit waar de leider zich bevindt (verkoop, supply chain, human resources, operatie, R&D, financien). Wat we zien als we door een Toyota fabriek lopen zijn slechts resultaten van hun verbeter- en leercultuur. Hierachter ligt de kern waar het om draait bij een Toyota operatie. Mensen leren hoe ze systematisch problemen moeten oplossen en zo de organisatie tot ontwikkeling brengen. Toyota vat dit samen als respect voor mensen en continu verbeteren. Echter de manier om dit te bereiken is door exceptioneel leiderschap. De ontwikkeling van leiders is geen kwestie van weken of maanden, maar van jaren en decennia. In Lean Leiders Ontwikkelen op alle Niveaus bouwen we voort op de theorie in het oorspronkelijke boek. We beantwoorden de vraag: Hoe kan ik dit toepassen in mijn organisatie? Welke concrete stappen kan ik zetten om een Lean leider te worden? Hoe kan ik mijn leerervaringen verspreiden over de organisatie? Welke instrumenten zijn nodig om de theorie in praktijk om te zetten? Dit boek geeft voorbeelden uit de praktijk van Dr. Liker. Je wordt behandeld als student die actief wordt betrokken bij de ontwikkeling van zijn vaardigheden als Lean leider. Het is een praktijkgids voor het begin van je trektocht. We gaan verder met het Lean leiderschap 4 fasen model van Liker en Convis: zelfontwikkeling, ontwikkeling van anderen, ondersteunen van dagelijks verbeteren en het betrekken van mensen uit de hele organisatie bij strategische planning en implementatie. Deze laatste fase wordt Hoshin Kanri genoemd. Deze stappen worden doorstraald met de vijf kernwaarden van Toyota: uitdagen, kaizen, ga kijken, respect en teamwork. De methode van training bestaat uit het overdragen van concepten in een klaslokaal maar vooral uit doen onder begeleiding van een ervaren mentor. Lean leiders zijn de teamleider, managers en directie van de organisatie en nooit een externe of interne Lean specialist. Dit boek is voortgekomen uit een online trainingsprogramma dat door Dr. Liker is herschreven in de vorm van deze praktische gids. Het doel is je te helpen bij de ontwikkeling van je Lean leiderschapsvaardigheden door te oefenen. Jeffrey K. Liker Universiteit van Michigan Auteur, The Toyota Way"

Book Summary :

The book presents a mixed research method adopted to assess and present the Toyota Way practices within construction firms in general and for firms in China specifically. The results of an extensive structured questionnaire survey based on the Toyota Way-styled attributes identified were developed and data collected from building professionals working in construction firms is presented. The quantitative data presented in the book explains the status quo of the Toyota Way-styled practices implemented in the construction industry, as well as the extent to which these attributes were perceived for lean construction management. The book highlights all the actionable attributes derived from the Toyota Way model appreciated by the building professionals, but alerts the readers that some attributes felled short of implementation. Further findings from in-depth interviews and case studies are also presented in the book to provide to readers an understanding how these Toyota Way practices can be implemented in real-life projects. Collectively, all the empirical findings presented in this book can serve to enhance understanding of Toyota Way practices in the lean construction management context. The readers are then guided through to understand the gaps between actual practice and Toyota Way-styled practices, and the measures that they may undertake to circumvent the challenges for implementation. The book also presents to readers the SWOT analysis that addresses the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats towards the implementation of the Toyota Way in the construction industry. The book prescribes the Toyota Way model for use in construction firms to strategically implement lean construction management. The checklist presented in the book enables readers to draw lessons that may be used additionally as a holistic assessment tool for measuring the maturity of firms with respect to their Toyota Way implementation. Consequent to this, management would then be in a better position to develop plans for Toyota Way implementation by focusing on weak areas, strengthening them, and thus increasing the likelihood of success in the implementation of the Toyota Way. In a nutshell, this book provides a comprehensive and valuable resource for firms not only in the construction industry but also businesses outside of the construction sector to better understand the Toyota Way and how this understanding can translate to implementation of lean construction/business management to enhance profitability and survivability in an increasingly competitive global market place.

Using the principles of the Toyota Production System, or lean, the contributors in this groundbreaking volume share their experience in transforming a major safety net public hospital after a tragic and internationally publicized event. As the largest municipal hospital system in the United States, the New York City Health & Hospitals Corporation adopted lean as the transformational approach for all of its hospitals and clinics. Kings County Hospital Center, one of the largest providers of behavioral health care in the country, continues on its transformational journey utilizing lean's techniques. While not every event was fully successful, most were and every event, including failures, increased the knowledge base about how to continually improve quality and safety. Having made major changes, Kings County Hospital Center is now recognized as a center for transformation and quality receiving high marks from oversight agencies. This volume begins by describing the basic principles of the lean approach-adding value, eliminating waste, and tapping the organization's line staff to create and sustain dramatic change. An overview of the use of lean from a quality improvement perspective follows. Lean tools are applied to many services that comprise the behavioral health value stream and these stories are highlighted. The experts in identifying waste and adding value are the line staff whose voices are captured in the clinical chapters. Insights learned by event participants are emphasized as teaching points to provide context for what has worked or has not worked at Kings County Hospital Center. While the burning platform at Kings County Hospital Center was white hot and while the Department of Justice scrutinized its quality of patient care, the application of lean methods and tools has transformed the hospital into a potential model for behavioral health programs facing the challenges of the present healthcare environment. It is a must-have story for clinicians, administrators and other leaders in the mental health field devoted to improving quality and safety at their hospitals and clinics.

Book Summary :

Written by former Toyota associates, Toyota By Toyota: Reflections from the Inside Leaders on the Techniques That Revolutionized the Industry focuses on the purpose of Lean methodologies, techniques, and principles. It compiles more than a century of combined experience from management-level employees who supply little-known insights about the Toyota Production System (TPS)—featuring many who worked directly with Taiichi Ohno. The book illustrates experiences at Toyota locations around the world, including the United States, Brazil, Venezuela, Europe, and Japan. Associates from various divisions, including sales, training, logistics, manufacturing, and human resources, provide diverse points of view regarding the application of the Lean principles discussed. In each chapter, TPS experts: Share their story about when and how they learned the specific Lean technique, methodology, or concept Describe the Lean technique, along with its benefits and pitfalls Supply helpful implementation tips A common thread that weaves these stories together is that each contributor had to learn their lessons the hard way. Although there is no magical, painless way to learn Lean, the authors hope that by sharing their experiences and struggles, you can avoid having to struggle through the same lessons. Readers will benefit from seeing the various approaches used to teach, as well as the unique way these authors translate that learning to the reader.
