Mapping the Organizations Vision!
I get super excited when I find a great video that tells a successful story. I have been following Paul Akers focus on lean principles for several years. Paul is the founder and president at FastCap, an international product development and manufacturing company located in Bellingham, Washington. Paul is also known as the “American Innovator” became of his travels that have taken him all over the world to visit lean companies. He has done a great job of promoting lean manufacturing principles because he walked the talk and implemented a successful system throughout his own company.
One of his travels took him to Walters & Wolf in Fremont, California. He talked with Nick Kocelj, their CEO, about their lean journey over this past year. Below is the video that Paul took, which I think clearly demonstrates when a management team in an organization are serious about the path forward in their lean journey. Enjoy!
