Practical Lean Leadership

To become a Lean Change Agent 3.0 through Lean Change Agent + Change Agilist + Practical Lean Leadership

"TPS is the accumulation of small improvement ideas through acts of leadership, Leadership start in the Gemba, Gemba Kaizen starts with a good Lean Leader, a good Lean Leader starts by being a good person, a good person is honest, reliable & capable" - Ritsuo Shingo

Kaizen is a Japanese term used to describe an approach of continuous improvement in an organization. It consists of two words: "kai," which means "change," and "zen," which translates to "good" or "better." Together, Kaizen refers to the philosophy of making small and constant improvements in all aspects of a company, from processes and productivity to quality and customer satisfaction.

Gemba refers to the real or physical place where the main activities of an organization occur, such as a factory, workshop, production department, or any other place where work is carried out. Accompanied by Genchi-genbutsu, which is the practice of going to the place where problems occur (gemba) and directly observing the source of problems.

Ritsuo Shingo, the son of the prestigious Father of Modern Manufacture Shigeo Shingo has been considered the Nobel Prize in Manufacturing, Ritsuo Shingo was the translator of the first book on Toyota Production System in English written by his father, with whom I have had the pleasure of training in TPS Leadership, Gemba Walk, Kaizen & Practical Leadership Skills and learning from his wisdom and experience about the gemba (The place where things happen) & Genchi Genbutsu (Go and observe for yourself to understand the reality of a problem or situation), it is the practice of going to the gemba.

Based on the experience lived with Ritsuo Shingo, Primi Cachero is governed by 3 principles in his personal and professional life:

  •  go & observe from the gemba (Genchi Genbutsu)
  •  Show your back (Senekawo Miseru)
  •  Never give up!

Using the change in self-leadership as TPS Leadership, is doing like water, you have to be fluid, find your way and open your own path. First it changes along with the circumstances, the environment marks the change, the water is powerful, first moving around an object and later moving the object. A small change can make a big difference.

I help generate a practical humane leadership as part of the TPS Leadership (Practical Lean Leadership) from the 'genba' with Kaizen (Continuous Improvement), according to the current context so that leaders at the service of the organization emerge, unlocking the potential of people to obtain business results, all within a organizational culture adapted to the current context and environments, showing kindness, compassion and concern for others.

From a Practical Lean Leadership inspired by the spirit of Leadership Sensei Shingo with "Never give up!" & by the principle of Senekawo Miseru (Show your back).

Fully up to date now, even though we are talking about 16th century Japan, are the leadership teachings of Shogun Ieyasu Tokugawa, which I try to follow in my day to day life:

Steadiness and have a long-term view: “Life is like a long journey with a heavy burden on your back. Don’t hurry.”

Diligence: “One who regards inconvenience as natural will never be discontented. When you want more than you have, remember the days when you were in need.” 

Learn from failure: “If you only know what it is to conquer and don’t know what it is to be defeated, it will be harmful to you.” 

Patience: “Patience is the base of being safe forever. Regard anger as your enemy.” 

Leaders take responsibility: “Blame yourself, not others.” 

Humility: “Not being enough is better than being too much.”
