Published: Portland: Productivity Press, 1988, Hardback in dust wrapper.
Contains: Black & white photographs; From the cover: Originally published in 1926, Today and Tomorrow, written by the worlds most famous automaker, Henry Ford, reveals the thinking that changed industry forever.
Long out of print, this book has been largely forgotten. Yet Fords ideas have never stopped having an impact; even Taiichi Ohno, the creator of the Just-In-Time (JIT) manufacturing system, freely acknowledges that a key stimulus to JIT was his close reading of Ford. Today these same ideas are re-emerging to vitalize American industry in new ways.
Today and Tomorrow chronicles Fords progressive ideas. It was his credo of using low-cost, high-quality production to win market share that inspired the Japanese to do the same. In these 24 chapters, Ford discusses topics that are just as relevant now as they were in 1926, at the height of Henry Fords success:
Money, power, and big business
Work standards, time, and motion
Learning from waste
Wages, hours, and employee motivation
The power of education
Today, Henry Ford deserves a fresh look. Here is the man who doubled wages, cut the price of a car in half, and produced over 2 million units a year. Time has not diminished the impact of his business philosophy, or his profound influence on worldwide industry. You will be enlightened by what you read and intrigued by the words of this colorful and remarkable man.
