See to Solve LLC was created by Steve Spear, senior lecturer at MIT, senior fellow at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, and author of works such as Decoding the DNA of the Toyota Production System, Learning to Lead at Toyota, Fixing Healthcare from the Inside, and The High Velocity Edge.
The "see a problem, swarm and solve a problem" learning dynamic has had astounding results: in healthcare–elimination of complications, compression and disappearance of wait times, and liberation of capacity. In industry, multipliers in throughput speed and capacity. In new product design, reductions by one-quarter to one-half the time to get to better plans.
The Toyota Way v.2: トヨタ道: Great book...great titlePublished on Feb 26, 2021
Summary: Jeffrey Liker has published v.2 of The Toyota Way, a great book the first time and even better now. Worth returning to the content and the wisdom in it, at some other point. This note is just about the beauty of the title, based on reflections and reviews prompted by the passing of Normal Bodek, creator of Productivity Press, management theory prospector, and the reason many had early insight as to what leading Japanese companies were doing differently to achieve the outrageous combinations of quality, affordability, product variety and time to market that was so disruptive in the 80s.
Discovering our way to greatness...Published on Feb 16, 2021
Summary: Sometimes it just doesn’t seem fair. You show up at work to solve hard problems that no one could resolve individually, and you bust it to develop design and deliver great products and services. But that outfit “across the street” keeps beating you, arriving earlier and faster with solutions to their customers problems that fit better and which they generated with seemingly less effort. How’d they pull that off when you've got access to the same science and technology, the same talent pool, and more or less the same market information?

See to Solve Flow™
Advanced web application built for collaborative, remote process mapping.
Realtime, remote collaborative editing
Your whole team can work together creating, modifying and perfecting your process maps.
Rich data, where you need it
Unlike standard drawing tools, our maps contain rich inbound and outbound connection data indicating the expected handoffs. Work instructions are embedded in the assignments to keep the details of what needs to be done at hand.
Nested and linked maps
When processes become too complex, you can simply collapse sets of steps into process groups allowing you easy access to both the forest and the trees.
Personalized "focus view"
Individual team members can focus the map on their swim lane, hiding irrelevant details. Relevant inbound/outbound tasks from other lanes are highlighted and a printable summary of all their tasks is available for them.
