Movie Night: Going "Gung Ho" For Lean

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In 1986, Michael Keaton starred in a film entitled “Gung Ho” which provides a fictional account of a Toyota-style Japanese auto maker opening a US factory.  The movie depicts Lean principles such as building quality into the process, job sharing, learning on the job, continuous improvement (kaizen), emphasizing team over individuals, just-in-time inventory, and leadership at all levels of the organization.

We’ll show a short clip of the movie (2-4 minutes), explain the Lean concept it is based upon, share why we selected it, and provide a linkage / application to other types of work.  Following each of these short presentations, we’ll have brief period for group conversation.
