This week marks the 7th edition of the Executive Development Mission by Honsha. Direct from beautiful Japan, the 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. Along with seminars and on-site Kaizen training, attendees are guided on a factory tour at the world-leading facility for structure and management of the Toyota Production System.
