Learning Kaizen from TOYOTA with Mind Maps

By: Hiranabe

I (Hiranabe) led a session with Mary Poppendieck in Agile2007.

We set two objectives: To explore what Agile can learn from TPS and To learn how to use mind maps to simulate group innovation.

And we show the audience short videos of Jidouka, and Yatai, then explored using group mind mapping commonalities and differences between Agile and TPS.

Here’s my session presentation slides;
And the results !
