What are your plans for this Saturday, January 9th between 8AM and 9AM Pacific Standard Time? I recommend you make time to tune into The American Innovator with Paul Akers, a new radio talk show by one of the best businessmen I know. We had the privilege of helping Paul and FastCap get started on their journey of continuous improvement and TPS about 8 years ago. Paul participated twice in our Japan Kaikaku Experience and has quickly applied the principles of kaizen and respect for people across his company. FastCap is now a benchmark client for us. I always learn something from Paul and only wish I had the courage to take half of the advice so he freely gives.
The American Innovator show will be about "ideas, business and the Toyota Production System". Paul has a unique business model that drives innovation and new product launch faster and better than I have ever seen anywhere. Combining that with lean thinking and Paul's natural energy, he's practically an unstoppable force. Although the first shows will most likely be more about business and innovation than the Toyota Production System, this is what Paul says on the introduction to his new program:
Paul has been a great asset to us in helping our new clients understand the real world challenges and successes of implementing the Toyota Production System. I hope people call in to ask him challenging questions about it as I am sure he will be up to the task.
Be sure to visit the FastCap website to see demos of some of their cool products. I use many FastCap products myself. You may find "just the thing" you have been looking for to make your process or project easier, or something to help you do kaizen. To get a feeling for Paul's style and how he teaches anyone who will listen about the Toyota Production System and kaizen, watch this video:
