Tune into NUMMI Tour Tales

By Jon Miller Published on October 25th, 2005

Today Mark Graban posted his first trip report from his visit to NUMMI, the GM / Toyota joint venture in California. I won’t give away the details, but it’s a good reminder to “abandon fixed ideas” and do what’s right rather than keep up appearances.
Visit the Lean Manufacturing Blog to read the first in the series “NUMMI Tour Tale #1: Why Fix the Escalator?”
Speaking of tour tales, Brad and Eric from Gemba are in Japan this week leading a group on our Japan Kaikaku Experience benchmarking trip of Lean companies. Look forward to some nuggets from their trip posted here when they get back.
