In October I mused on the "success" or otherwise of Lean, and what it had done for the once fine brand of Toyota:
"Toyota, you may be aware, has had to recently recall "some" of its cars because of a production fault over a number of years.One month on and blinkey, blonkey, blimey, Toyota have had to issue yet another product recall. This time Toyota will recall 2.7 million cars worldwide because of problems with the steering wheel and water pump system. The recall affects nine models, including the Toyota Corolla and the second-generation Prius.
How many cars?
Over 7.4M (manufactured between September 2006 and December 2008), it is in fact the largest recall in the company's history!
Mind you, it has had other recalls in earlier years; again because of failures in production.
What does this tell us about Lean?
At the very least it tells us that Lean is not a panacea for the ills of the public (or indeed the private) sector. The evangelists and zealots who spoke at last month's conference (after they have counted their earnings from the conference and Lean consultancies) may care to reflect on that! "
Lean goes from strength to strength!
Tax does have to be taxing.
