success!

TRADITIONAL MANAGEMENT VS.
LEAN MANAGEMENT
 Traditional Managers say: “I trust you”
 Lean Managers say: “What is the problem; What is the root
cause of the problem; How do we know when the problem is
solved; Let me know when you have solved the problem”
 According to the Japan Management Association the Harada
Method is the best technique for developing employees.
HISTORY OF HARADA
 Middle school teacher in Osaka, Japan coaching track and
field
 Lowest performing school in the area (380 total comparable schools)
 Developed the idea if there is a process to encourage these
students to set their own goal for life and work, this would
make them more self reliant, thus more engaged, involved,
and motivated!

END OF THE SPRINT
 The people development is the missing link in most
companies:
 This means no clear relationship between individual goals, career
goals, and organizational goals.
 Success of any type (either personal or professional) cannot
not be attained unless individuals make an ef fort to attain it.
