Norman Bodek is once again back for episode #47 of the LeanBlog Podcast, talking about his most recent trip to Japan (his 68th trip!). He poses the question, “What can we do to leapfrog Toyota?” Norman asks important questions about how we can help people, in any role, enjoy their work, rather than dreading Mondays. Why does Norman think the Canon photocopier plant he just toured is the best he’s ever seen? Why does Norman disagree with the phrase, “Work smarter, not harder”??
