The Secret Sauce for Toyota Production System
2:00 – 5:30 pm – Ballroom (Onsite – Room 1)
DAVE HARRY, a.k.a. “The Process Whisperer®”
Retired U.S. Naval Aviator
CEO of Process Whisperer® Consultants LLC, Greeneville, Tennessee, USA
ASQ certified Six Sigma Black Belt and A PMI certified PMP®
Kata in the Classroom (KiC) workshops are based on Mike Rother’s “Toyota Kata” methodology and that Scientific Thinking is a life skill. It’s the basis for creativity and successfully pursuing seemingly unattainable goals. KiC demonstrates a teachable skill that anyone can learn — by combining a simple scientific striving pattern with practice routines called Kata – to help you learn meta-cognitive strategies. Many view Toyota Kata as the “secret sauce” of the Toyota Production System (TPS). Mike Rother wrote “Toyota Kata” to explain the secrets of TPS improvement sustaining methodology. How do we prepare for the future when we don’t know what the future will bring? We can’t predict how to get from A to B… we’re stumped and overwhelmed, there are time constraints and economic pressure. Dave Harry will share the “secret sauce” with IEOM and Lima Area University students through an intense hands-on “Kata in the Classroom” workshop. Be prepared to move fast!
Prizes: Each round table will be used for a team. Local university can form teams to complete. Dave is very kind to provide some prizes with gift cards.
