The strong intrinsic which Japanese manufacturing industry has ４
I believe the traditional Japanese manufacturing way is still strong. I will write about this matter.
When Japanese manufacturing industry suddenly made a world debut and surprised the world with its high quality products, in Japan both the president and employees are working together on shop-floors to make products which make the customers happy. I found that kind of atmosphere when I read the biographies of Kohnosuke Matsushita the founder of Panasonic, Soichiro Honda the founder of Honda Motors, and Masaru Ibuka the founder of Sony. They work together with employees and got the best total solution.
I am sure that this type approach is still important and useful management skill now. It is different from the Western top-down approach. It is done by all the people through Kaizen and these continuous small Kaizen makes big change in management.
Question: Do you see any difference between the manufacturing long time ago and now in your company?
