About twenty or twenty five years ago Norman Bodek was taking executives to Japan to see the Japanese discipline of management, and he brought Taiichi Ohno and Shigeo Shingo to the U.S. to teach at his Productivity conferences. Honestly, most folks didn't get it then. But, Norman kept translating their books and preaching the new discipline of management.
Now Norman Bodek has discovered the Harada method and has given us this latest gift of the Japanese mind. You have to listen when Norman Bodek speaks. He has been too right for too long to be ignored. His book on the Harada method presents not only a disciplined process of self-development, it is a process that can be applied on an enterprise scale. The benefits of everyone achieving a higher level of discipline and development across and enterprise should be obvious.
This is worth reading, either for yourself or for your organization.
Lawrence M. Miller
I have been in a number of industries through the years and a victim of down-sizing, right-sizing etc. implementing “Lean” and it always struck me that it was all about money no matter what your contribution was as an employee. I learned in my college days about "Social Responsibility" - that concept is totally foreign to Companies and Corporations today. I have also found that most organizations do not take the time to 'invest' in their employee's that in turn build strong employees, teamwork, higher and more effective productivity, creativity etc. Training is the last item to consider with most American companies. The various interviews in the book provide insight into the differences between American and Japanese management philosophies especially with respect to the individual. The concepts provided seem to be common-sense but are taken to another level in terms of discipline and execution (the method involving answering 33 questions for Self Reliance, setting Long Term Goals, using the Open Window 64 chart, setting up your Daily Diary, and setting up your Routine Check Sheet) and with the assistance of a trusted coach.
The book discusses the philosophy of Mr. Takashi Harada in relation to Taiichi Ohno (the Toyota Production System), Dr’s Shiegeo Shingo SMED / Poka Yoke), and Joji Akao (Hoshin Planning / QFD). The book compares American and Japanese Lean Manufacturing with interviews with Dr. Jeffrey Liker (The Toyota Way) discussing the relationship between the Toyota Production System success and developing employees.
One of the concepts that made an impression on me was the concept of becoming a Master; i.e. learning by watching in a master / apprentice relationship reverting to what was done in the past in America. The other item of interest was the Ohno Circle involving deep observation of processes to understand problems and identify waste. I also found it interesting about a comment: “Too often the idea of mastery is the if we understand the concept intellectually to the point where we can define it, we have mastered it…. if we understand something intellectually, we out to be able to do it. … there is no connection between what we understand intellectually and what we have the capacity to do.”
If you are interested in the Human Side of Lean and if you are looking for a place to start in becoming self-reliant as well as contributing to your work, to society, and to yourself and family; The Harada Method is the foundation for that rewarding journey.
The focus is on self-reliance. You determine the goals and what you need to do to be successful and of course you have to do the work. However the process and tools provide the structure you need to create your future.
Robert Fritz in the Path of Least Resistance taught us about the need to change the underlying structures that lead us in directions we don't want. The Harada Method teaches us how to bring about those changes. As an Organization Development Consultant I also see how Harada's tools and process can be adapted to help an Organization clarify it's goals and achieve success.
The Harada Method is a proven set of tools and techniques to get the most out of your capabilities, to achieve your goals, and to set you on the path to self-reliance. Many of the components of the Harada Method may already be familiar to you, but it is the complete system that has brought success for the students of Mr Harada.
If you want the tools to create the future you want, this book is a great starting point. Importantly, you MUST put into practice the Harada Method, not simply read the book. Another gem from Norm Bodek!
