Ron Pereira at Gemba Academy recently had the opportunity to sit down with Masaaki Imai, the fascinating founder of the Kaizen Institute and author of Kaizen: The Key to Japan's Competitive Success. The discussion was recorded in full HD, one part of which is below.
In this video you’ll hear about Mr. Imai’s personal encounters with Kiichiro Toyoda and Taiichi Ohno… including a surprise story about Mr. Ohno rarely (if ever?) told before. Be sure to listen to the end as that is where Mr. Imai let’s the “cat” out of the bag!
This 5 part 40+ minute interview is included in Gemba Academy's Complete Lean Package which currently consists of 165 lean training videos and continues to expand each month.
We also captured additional video of Mr. Imai conducting a gemba walk and delivering a 45 minute lecture on Kaizen Leadership… all of this video footage will be included in the Complete Lean Package in the near future at no additional cost.
