Lean implementation in China is still at the elementary stage, we need a Chinese Shingo Prize to help our companies to recognize ourselves, so as to improve the management ability, and lead to the improvement of management level of the whole China manufacturing industry, and show the world with new China. That's the reason why the Great Wall Award for Manufacturing Excellence was founded.'

'This is a great exercise to perform the assessment from selected enterprises who are implementing the lean and kaizen in their organizations. I saw there are many companies with high attention and support from top level leadership team when they introduced lean manufacturing, and I felt the enthusiasm from local management team on lean deployment, this is also very important to lean success, when I performed the assessment in some enterprises, I saw the excellent jobs in workshop management, lean tools application, and very good lean system and structures. I do believe lean success in China in near future. As for GWA, I like the format to share the experiences from one company to others, the assessment template is well designed and the program is also well organized. I like the event. I wish you and your team, as well as 1FMG, a great success 2011 '
