NUMMI

This American Life had a great radio show last week about New United Motor Manufacturing, Inc. (NUMMI), which was a joint venture between Toyota and General Motors so that GM could learn the Toyota Production System and so that Toyota could learn how to apply the Toyota Production System in the United States.

It's a fantastic show and if you've read Implementing Lean Software Development: From Concept to Cash from Mary and Tom Poppendieck, I think you'll really get a kick out of it.

Highly recommended.
