I was hired by Toyota Motor Manufacturing KY (TMMK) in 1988 at the start up of the first North American Toyota plant, worked ten years on the production floor from hourly to management then moved on to Human Resources as a trainer/sensei. I worked one-on-one with Japanese trainers and certified by the Toyota Institute in Japan in the 8 step TBP Problem solving. I have over 460 hours training in the Toyota Production System.
Created our business Teaching Lean Incorporated in 2003–now Ernie Richardson and I travel all over the U.S. teaching and implementing Lean Transformation in various industries. Joined the faculty at The Lean Enterprise Institute (LEI) lean.org in 2008. Teaching Lean Inc facilitates private sessions, summits, speaking engagements, and conferences.
