Conversations with Taiichi Ohno

Gain new insights into Ohno-san’s way of thinking.

Conversations with Taiichi Ohno: Management Insights for the Digital Age is a fictional conversation between the author and Taiichi Ohno that explores the purpose and meaning of the Toyota Production System and how it anticipated today’s digital age. It also dives deeply into kaizen, the improvement method that was instrumental in creating TPS.

Ohno’s remarkable work and his unique way of thinking helped create a new management system that will energize and strengthen corporate digital transformation in the 21st century.

Learn why the Toyota Production System — and kaizen — is more relevant in the 21st century than it was in the 20th century and how it will help your company survive and prosper in the digital age.

I really like it. I think it’s very deep. People may not understand how truly deep some of the points are.
