True North Thinking Inc.
Matt Elson started his learning journey at Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada. Beginning with the basics of material ordering and flow, to demand planning and eventually spearheading company-wide projects, the puzzle pieces of the Toyota Production System began to click into place.
The pace of his learning increased with personal coaching and mentoring from world-class practitioners at the Toyota Supplier Support Center (TSSC). Matt continued to learn by doing and by teaching, as he supported the global transformation of Magna International, using the people and leadership development concepts of TPS.
Now at True North Thinking Inc., he applies the lessons learned from almost every industry you can imagine, in massive factories to small, custom job shops and many diverse establishments in between. The emphasis ranges from business based improvements to safety, quality, delivery, and cost as people constantly learn how to improve their own work and to solve problems daily.
