Toyota VS Tesla? What lean can learn from digital natives

Tesla recent production challenges have served as a reminder to the Silicon Valley that Lean manufacturing cannot be improvised. But Tesla’s valuation, the success of the GAFAs and the speed at which they innovate should also be a reminder to Toyota and the Lean community that scale-ups are doing something right.
In this talk, we want to explore the mixing of both cultures, using the example of Theodo, a software company full of digital natives first inspired by the GAFA’s agility and then by Toyota’s Lean Strategy.
We will look in particular at our current most advanced experiment in lean coding in which we use lean to introduce self-improvement at code-level. But how we also leverage data and social networks to accelerate innovation.
