Genchi Genbutsu translates to “Go and see for yourself”. This Principle plays an integral part of the Toyota Production System. The notion is that rather than simply hear or read about a problem and make a suggestion for improvement, one should actually go to its direct location and experience the situation first hand.
Back in June 2009, Peter gave an introduction to Genchi Genbutsu at a Tuesday Lunch. Since then, he has been fortunate enough to have had a couple of opportunities to try it. Peter is going to share his experience and learnings in applying this principle. He will discuss his experience in the “Behind-The-Scenes” Pharmacy visit as well as his recent experience in playing the role of QA in the NG Team.
