3P and Moonshine with Jon Boucher

The Production Preparation Process (3P) was invented by Chihiro Nakao, who is known as the Father of Moonshine (FOM). Nakao, one of the original disciples of Taiichi Ohno, (Father of the Toyota Production System) taught us at Danaher and GE how to develop processes that will drive your company to industry-wide competitive advantage. Learn from Jon Boucher, a star pupil and disciple of Nakao, how 3P and Moonshine are that part of Lean that few will ever learn, and why your company should adopt this practice.

    What an amazing podcast from a technical perspective! I still feel there is so much untapped potential around process improvement relating to cultural mindset which goes outside the boundaries of the “Respect for People” principle, but which will represent the biggest impediment towards genuine transformational progress relating to our nation’s capacity to provide goods & services.
