The Harada Method

Agile comes from Lean; Lean comes from Japan. The Harada Method makes it all work!

  • Over 80,000 people trained in Japan
  • Over 300 Japanese companies trained including Uniqlo, Kirin and more
  • Japan's best baseball player, Shohei Otani, uses the method
  • It's the world's best system for developing people

Japan dominated the world in quality and productivity. Decades later the West is still trying to catch up. What Lean did for manufacturing products, the Harada Method does for developing people.

what is the Harada Method?

Takashi Harada was a junior high school coach at the worst school of Osaka. He had a burning desire for his students to be successful. After 20 years of studying the world's greatest coaches he created a daily management system that made champions. He then took his method to industry and opened a new chapter in Japan's book of management practice excellence.
