Helping Non-Profits Make the Most of Every Dollarclose
What can manufacturing cars teach us about feeding the hungry or building homes for families in need? Since 1992, our Toyota Production System Support Center (TSSC) has been sharing the techniques of the Toyota Production System (TPS) to help companies and organizations across the country increase efficiencies, streamline processes, and better serve their customers. Virtually any type of organization, from leading corporations and small businesses to community service organizations can benefit from TPS. TSSC's work is focused on developing people through Kaizen.
TSSC recently launched a national program to support up to 20 community and non-profit organizations across the U.S., using TPS to help improve their operations, extend their reach and increase their impact. The work began with the St. Bernard Project, a New Orleans recovery organization that employs returning war veterans, AmeriCorps members and volunteers to rebuild homes devastated by Hurricane Katrina.
