Why Brain Booster Pocket Cards?

By Pascal Dennis,

Over the past few years we've spend a great deal of energy on Brain Booster Pocket Cards.

What are we trying to do?

In the spirit of visual management we're trying to crystallize the fundamentals of the Lean Business System.

Less is more -- the cardinal proverb.

We want our three suites -- Lean Thinking, Lean Tools & Lean Leadership -- to complement classic Lean text books.

The Toyota Way, Lean Production Simplified, Managing to Learn, Andy & Me... these are all fine resources -- by they're largely words.

We want to express their essence in pictures.

My personal mission is to translate the profound system of knowledge I was lucky enough to learn at Toyota.

I want to make it available to people all over the world.

So our images will be available in a variety of media: pocket cards, posters, iPhone apps etc.

Next -- how do you use them?

Watch our blog for updates...


  1. As they say Pascal - a picture is worth a thousand words.
    These are a great way to condense things down to their essence which makes them easily undestood

  2. In my experience, the laws of management are as immutable as those of physics.

    We're trying to illustrate those laws in our Brain Booster suites.

  3. We know True North from Strategy Deployment as a guide to navigate the organization going forward.
    The Brain Booster Suites are like Polaris, providing a guide to Leadership to guide them going forward.
