Stories from my sensei; two decades of lessons learned implementing Toyota-style systems.

Hoeft, Steven E.

CRC / Taylor & Francis


160 pages




Aiding individuals who want to learn how to implement TPS principles, Hoeft recounts stories he learned during his career from Toyota Production System (TPS) master teachers about continuous improvement and lean implementation using the Toyota House model. He discusses the historical and foundational aspects of TPS and relates stories about pillars of the model like just-in-time, built-in-quality, and respect for people, and tools like kanban, quick changeover, and A3 problem solving. Hoeft, a Toyota-trained Toyota Production System Coach at Altarum Institute, is a practitioner and teacher in lean certification at the U. of Michigan.
