Book Summary :

Эта книга обошла почти все государства. Она напечатана на многих языках. Везде ее издания расходились нарасхват. Выдержавшая около ста изданий (в том числе семь изданий в СССР в 1924-1927 гг. ) автобиографическая книга одного из выдающихся менеджеров XX века, организатора поточно-конвейерного производства и отца автомобильной промышленности США написана ярко, образно, энергично и вдохновенно. Жгучий интерес к ней создан не искусственной рекламной шумихой, а самим ее содержанием: за этой книгой - жизнь и деятельность очень большого человека, за ней - практический опыт создателя производства, небывалого по масштабам и организации. Она содержит богатейший материал, во многом представляющий исторический интерес, но в целом ряде случаев сохраняющий актуальность для экономистов, бизнесменов, руководителей и организаторов производства, чья деятельность нацелена на творческое осмысление и успешное решение хозяйственных задач.

Book Summary :

Про бережливое производство написано много книг. Но независимо от того, какого аспекта методов Toyota касаются авторы — производственной системы в целом, концепции «точно вовремя», процесса быстрой переналадки, системы разработки продукции, — везде речь в первую очередь идет о людях. Без профессионального, добросовестного и увлеченного своей работой персонала ни Toyota, ни другие компании, которые идут по ее стопам, не достигли бы успеха. Воспитание, обучение и продвижение людей — это основа, на которую опираются все инструменты, методы и правила, составляющие суть бережливого производства. В книге рассказывается об уникальной системе управления персоналом Toyota, которая во многом построена на технологии TWI (Training Within Industry), разработанной в США.

Book Summary :

Внедрение бережливого производства часто оканчивается неудачей потому, что эту систему воспринимают как механистическую, как набор процедур и технологий. Авторы книги показывают, что ключ к успеху Toyota — в особом отношении к людям, в сочетании высочайших требований руководства и уважения к каждому сотруднику. Такую культуру нельзя привить за пару тренингов, а без особой культуры бережливое производство построить невозможно. В книге впервые описываются основные элементы корпоративной культуры Toyota — ее главного «секретного оружия». Книга поможет научиться адаптировать культуру Toyota к нуждам своей компании, сохраняя ее главную основу — стремление к совершенству. Книга будет полезна, прежде всего, высшим руководителям компаний, которых интересует совершенствование корпоративной культуры.

П. Д. Успенский начинает свою книгу с того, что рассказывает о сути системы «Четвертый путь» и кратко формулирует ее основные идеи. А затем конкретизирует их в ответах на вопросы, которые ему задавали ученики из разных стран.С точки зрения автора, мы не используем даже малой части своих способностей и сил. Мы рождены, чтобы жить в четырех состояниях сознания, но, по сути, постоянно находимся лишь в двух из них: либо спим, либо «бодрствуем». Но и в последнем случае, по мнению Успенского, человек действует всего лишь как «машина», автоматически реагирующая на внешние обстоятельства. Но в нашей власти по-разному использовать то, что нам дано. Аэроплан может стать повозкой, если в него запрячь лошадей, а может парить в небе.П. Д. Успенский рассказывает о том, как достичь высших состояний сознания (самосознание и объективное сознание) и, в конечном счете, вести подлинно человеческую жизнь, в которой мы не жертвы реальности, разбивающей наши мечты, а ее полноправная часть.Эта книга состоит из дословных выдержек бесед с Успенским периода между 1921 и 1946 годами.

Book Summary :

Lean Behavioral Health: The Kings County Hospital Story is the first lean book that focuses entirely on behavioral health. 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 :

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 :

WE'VE ALL EXPERIENCED the challenges associated with working with groups, but The Handbook for Working with Difficult Groups turns the idea of "difficult groups" on its head. Rather than view groups as inherently difficult, it looks at the factors that make working with groups difficult. Individual chapters focus on challenges such as involving dissenters, building external perspectives, reducing complaining, adapting to cultural differences, incorporating diversity, facilitating inclusion, working virtually, resolving identity-based conflict, transforming unproductive behavior patterns, preventing workplace harassment, and strengthening accountability. The book first provides a framework for thinking systemically about the many and varied ways in which working with a group can be difficult. Building on that framework, the contributors each address three basic issues: How the group is difficult—a description of a real group and the observable phenomena that reflect the group's difficulty. Why the group is difficult—an exploration of the underlying causes of the difficulty. What you can do about it—what you can do as a group facilitator, leader, or member to help the group.

Book Summary :

Toyota ist Sinnbild für beispielhafte Unternehmensführung und das beneidenswerte Geschick, sich perfekt an veränderte Gegebenheiten anzupassen – und eines der weltweit erfolgreichsten Unternehmen. Der Konzern bricht einen Gewinnrekord nach dem anderen, während viele seiner Wettbewerber Marktanteile verlieren und mit Mühe überhaupt schwarze Zahlen schreiben. Das bewährte Erfolgsrezept, das dahinter steckt, ist schlicht und ergreifend eine funktionierende Unternehmenskultur und -ethik. Eine wichtige Realität des Toyota-Wegs lautet, dass es immer mehr als einen Weg gibt, um das erwünschte Ergebnis zu erzielen. Wichtig ist dazuzulernen, über das Gelernte nachzudenken, es anzuwenden, über den gesamten Prozess zu reflektieren und alle Aspekte kontinuierlich auf eine Art und Weise zu verbessern, die die Organisation langfristig stärkt. Das gute am Toyota-Konzept: Es ist, wie Jeffrey K. Liker und David Meier in diesem Fieldbook beweisen, leicht auf andere Unternehmen übertragbar. In ihrem Begleitbuch zu dem internationalen Bestseller »Die Toyota-Methode« arbeiten die beiden Autoren die Firmenphilosophie und die Ideen heraus, die den überwältigenden Erfolg von Toyota ermöglicht haben, und beschreiben Schritt für Schritt, wie dieses Wissen auf andere Unternehmen übertragen werden kann. Der Leser bekommt mit diesem Werk einen Leitfaden an die Hand, der ihm mit vielen anschaulichen Beispielen vor Augen führt, wie er die Stärken Toyotas effizient für den eigenen Erfolg einsetzen kann.
