The greatest influence Toyota had on me as a leader and as a person is the philosophy of kaizen, which is about continuous improvement on what you are already doing. However, continuous improvement does not mean changing one new wheel for the old one (figuratively speaking), it means making the current wheel better. Many, many times in education we are told to exchange one wheel for another when we should be looking at the new wheel’s components and adding those pieces that will make our wheel, which is working well already, better. Any exemplary teacher knows what is good for student learning and already tries to make their “Learning Wheel” better, just like in the Toyota Production System. Indeed, we in education need to try out a new wheel and see how it fits in with our current wheel and evaluate it, to determine if is good for students.
