After being transferred to the Kaizen team in the company, he continued to be successful in promoting a higher level of productivity in various departments.He continues to work closely with many ex-Toyota consultants and is responsible for reducing over 1,000 billion yen worth of inventory through his own consulting work on Kaizen.
