Genchi Gembatsu

   

Definition: Genchi Gembatsu is one of the core principles of Lean Manufacturing and is a Japanese term used at Toyota, meaning "go out and see for yourself". In other words, business decisions should always be based on firsthand knowledge (from customers). It is the idea that to really understand any part of any business problem, you need to go and see for yourself firsthand. You should never take anything for granted or rely solely on reports from others.
