Author Norman Bodek is the secret weapon of lean manufacturing. In his 59 trips to Japan, Norman met Shigeo Shingo, Taiichi Ohno and other architects of lean, then published their books in English and other languages. The story of his quest is amazing -- with lessons for anyone interested in lean. The term Kaikaku means much more than kaizen (process improvement). It is a large and fundamental change of policy, practice, or awareness.
