Learn the roots of The Toyota Production System and the tools and techniques that make Toyota the Gold standard in Lean, direct from the creators of Lean, and from a trainer who is an expert in how Toyota does what Toyota does better than anyone else.

Experience how Toyota is learning and using Scrum and see real world examples of their successes and challenges.
