The ToyodaWay Game CD contains this presentation which specifically focuses on the 14 management principles that form the foundation of the Toyota Production System. Each principle is defined and described in practical terms. Following this is a Jeopardy-like game board with 5 categories and 5 levels of points for each category. Participants select their category and points, and the “answer” is shown. The participant then states the “question.”
There are many ways to play the game. The typical method is to put all contestants’ names into a box and as each name is drawn, he or she selects and answers the question to win a prize. Use your imagination to create a fun experience as participants see and associate the TPS terms (Toyota Production System) with their meaning.
The take-away is a full understanding of the TPS terms and the differences between them. Once the team can recite the terms, they are ready for the next level of lean training.
