Japan Lean Tour - thinking back to the beginning

Sometimes it's interesting to "go back" and review videos from the beginning of the program.

We had a particularly extensive "hansei" and reflection times on day two of the Japan trip, during which we discussed the best way to understand Japan, its philosophy, and its culture. We also talked about how this culture compliments the whole lean thinking and 5S.

This was from day two, so it will be interesting to see if the participants' thinking and ideas have changed by the time they left Japan for home. 

Although our Japan Lean Tour is now complete, I wanted to upload this particular video as a reminder how thinking may change or shift from the beginning of the trip to the end of the trip.

We will do another round-the-table hansei discussion back in Canada with the Blackbelts and Executives as part of our continuous learning about lean culture.
