The Best Factory in the World

The Best Factory in the World (site broke link so I removed it) by Norman Bodek (from his book, Kaikaku):

This is a story about a time when Bodek asked Shigeo Shingo to take him to the “very best factory in all of Japan.”

Pictures of areas of the factory or the office hung throughout the plant. Workers were encouraged to look at the pictures and talk about them together, then to make improvements.

After the visit, I could understand better how it is possible to have a super-efficient manufacturing plant where people’s needs for growth, respect and creativity are also met.

Another excellent article from Superfactory.
