Feedback on the recent gemba practices

  • I can say that it was the first time I participated in a real Lean manufacturing workshop. I absolutely loved to be part of Ritsuo Shingo training, this opportunity  strengthen my confidence and motivated me even more to give our best in facing the new challenges. Ritsuo Shingo is definitely an outstanding leader.

  • It was a very good experience, I had the opportunity to share with people coming from different plants/industries and to learn from the very long experience of Ritsuo Shingo. Listening to Ritsuo Shingo during the workshop I realized that for my plant is very important to create a company culture, a culture of continuous improvement which will sustain the lean tools.
