The Idea Generator Authors: Bunji Tozawa, Norman Bodek
"This book, in all its simplicity, has the power to generate overwhelming positive change wherever its concepts are implemented. A prime focus is to help generate tons of improvement ideas, more than you could ever imagine, from all employees, and empower them to install their own ideas! Therein lies the secret of why this creative revolution does not become a bureaucratic nightmare. This book tells you how to do it in a way that gives you an inspired workforce without any accompanying managerial headaches." — Don Dewar, President, QCI International - Quality Digest magazine Price - $47.52 (Shipping and sales tax will be added.)
Kaikaku Author: Norman Bodek
"Norman’s easy-to-read style and vivid recountings of time spent with people like Shigeo Shingo, Kaoru Ishikawa and Dr. W. Edwards Deming (and others) makes what could have been a dry technical book come alive. This book seems more like a conversation with an old friend. For those of fortunate enough to have heard Norman speak, you get the sense that Norman is right there with you, telling you the story in person. His enthusiasm and love for the principles of world class behavior comes through along with a willingness to laugh at himself while taking us along on his life-long journey toward a fuller understanding of the Japanese culture and their drive for waste free manufacturing. Obtain your own copy. It is a mandatory part of the personal library for anyone interested in world class manufacturing." — Gary Conner, Lean Enterprise Training Price - $47.52 (Shipping and sales tax will be added.)
