Abstract

Three improvement programmes; Lean, Business Process Re-engineering (BPR) and Managing by Projects (MBP) are disaggregated into: vision, principles, toolbox and learning organisation, and benchmarked against the TPS. MBP is found to bear the closest resemblance to the TPS, by virtue of its systems orientation and learning organisation.
