Section meeting May 16: The Human Side of Lean and the role of the quality manager to bring out the best from people.
Presented by Norman Bodek a noted author and publicist. His most recent books;
- A Miraculous Life – An Unending Search for Freedom is based on the idea that everyone has the innate power to do fantastic things. Management just has to value and inspire them to develop their skills to their maximum capability;
- Harada Method, based on self-reliance, is a proven way for people to pick goals for personal success, create detailed career and life plans to attain those goals, daily monitor themselves, work with a coach and also be a coach while helping their organizations improve their performance (Harada’s most famous student Shohei Otani joined the Los Angeles Angels);
- Happiest Company to Work For! – Mirai Industries in Japan has never lost money in 50 years, has obtained the most patents for a company its size, fully differentiates itself and asks every employee to be totally self-reliant.
Current projects: I teach the Harada Method over zoom.us. I am also editing a book by Dr. Hiroshi Nagata, which I hope will revolutionize medical care in America
