This classic, authored by the world's most famous automaker, reveals the thinking that changed the industry forever. First published in 1926 and long out of print, the book had been largely forgotten. Yet Ford's ideas have never stopped having an impact--even Taiichi Ohno acknowledged that a key stimulus to JIT was his close reading of this book. Today, these same ideas are re-emerging to revitalize American industry in new ways.
While our fascination with contemporary business leaders continues, Henry Ford deserves a fresh look. Here is the man who doubled wages, cut the price of a car in half, and produced over 2 million units a year. Time has not diminished the progressiveness of his business philosophy, or his profound influence on worldwide industry.
You will be enlightened by what you read and intrigued by the words of this colorful and remarkable man.
