“True North,” an idiom that emerged from Toyota twenty years ago, connotes the compass for Lean transformation, a set of guiding principles that give purpose and direction to the technical aspects of operational excellence. Two decades later, while many organizations have gained a modest benefit from Lean technical improvements, the power of True North principles has eluded them. Most have hit plateaus well below their potentials, unable to sustain improvement and receive the full benefits of Lean transformation.
But a few organizations outside of Toyota have emerged as True North beacons; companies that have learned Lean tools are necessary, but not sufficient to create sustainable improvement. The 2013 Northeast region Shingo Prize Conference will focus on successful application of True North principles, bringing together managers, shop floor teams, and industry experts from these successful North American lean transformations to share their True North success stories – the obstacles they faced in setting a new course to world class and the success they gather once on course.
The Northeast region Shingo Prize for Operational Excellence, sponsored by GBMP an education partner of the Shingo Prize will celebrate its 25th anniversary of the Prize at its annual conference September 24-25 at the Hyannis Resort & Conference Center, in Hyannis, Massachusetts. Our theme for 2013: “True North – set your course and make waves”.
