Superstorm Sandy relief, lean, and Toyota
This video is great in many ways. First, it’s a great demonstration of how simple lean can be. While it doesn’t capture all of the essence or the experience behind some of the simple improvements, it does show how simple the improvements can be.
Second, it demonstrates that when lean is combined with a compelling vision (in this case, feeding people after Superstorm Sandy), it can create a fantastic result. They really helped a lot of people through this.
Third, and this is more personal, but one of the Toyota guys featured is friend and former Chrysler colleague Jamie Bonini, who I only seem to run into at airports lately. Toyota shows just another way at how it engages the community with resources such as Jamie.
