Honsha Executive Development Mission to Japan

October 8, 2017 - October 14, 2017

I can’t go on this trip as I’m tied up with MBOE students with OSU that week, but I’ll be happy to discuss the trip with you either before or after you go. It is a fantastic learning experience. If you can’t make it in October, they will do another next May.

The Oct 2017 Executive Development Mission aims to bring leaders to the next level of lean thinking by showing the role of culture awareness. Guests will understand the pure principles of Kaizen directly from Gemba observations at Toyota and other Japanese organizations.

The Toyota Production System is considered to be the final production control method, which has led Toyota Motors to be the most competitive motor company in the world. Every company in the world today is interested in whether to implement the Toyota Production System to their system. We organized the Executive Development Mission, to see the current status of its place of birth, at Toyota Motors.

We offer seminars, on-site Kaizen training, and what’s more, a factory tour at the world-leading facility for structure and management of the Toyota Production System.

See how Toyota produces high quality automobiles. Multiple vehicle models are manufactured on a single production line to promptly respond to customer needs. With a guided tour, visitors can see how body parts are welded onto a vehicle body and parts are assembled to form a complete vehicle.

As many as 4000 exhibition pieces – dynamic displays of original equipment, actual demonstrations by operators, instructive videos, and more. The exhibitions provide an easy-to-understand introduction to the concept of making things. Experience making things first hand and discover the wonders of spirit of the being studious and creative.
