Respect for People

4th September 2018 in London at CodeNode

There are 1 other SkillsCast available from Digital Leadership : What Are Digital Leaders Made Of?

Jon Terry talks about: "Respect for People". We have been doing some research on this topic. Whilst most people attribute Lean Thinking to Toyota Production System (TPS), a few are voicing an essential missing piece: Culture.

Culture is a lot harder to codify and has generally been missed. Muda (waste) in Toyota was not about waste itself, but about empowering the workforce to improve the place of work and the products. Knowledge work on the production chain. Today, Tesla who tried to robotise most of the Model 3 production chain, discovered painfully that robots do not find continuous improvements. This, we believe, is at the core of Knowledge Work and ten times more relevant in IT than it is on a production chain. So I will look forward to hear more from Jon what "Respect for People" covers.
