The courage shown by Mitsuo Hitomi is remarkable. His company, Mazda, had been in the red for a couple years. Yet, he had the courage and foresight to identify that the problem was in engine design. He therefore started at redesigning the engine to make it more fuel efficient using Critical Chain instead of finding band aids to fix little things in hopes of saving the company. He now has a product that will carry his company into the next decade. Exceptional man and significant bottom line results!
