    Womack Podcast on GM

    Topic: Management Improvement, Toyota Production System

    Womack Audio on Bloomberg.com (14 minutes) via the Lean Blog, where they quote from the audio:

    "What do they worry about? They worry about the fact the system is still driven out of Japan and they're everywhere now in terms of factories, in terms of R&D, but the fact is, to put the discipline in the system, that force, that energy is still coming out of Toyota City. How do they diffuse that energy so it's not coming from one place? I don't have the answer. They don't have the answer. But they think about it every day."
