Who We Are

At Honsha, our dedication to excellence is at the heart of everything we do. For nearly a quarter of a century, we’ve been a trusted partner in Lean, providing impactful insights and practices that empower both individuals and their organizations.

With a global reach, our headquarters are based in San Diego, CA (USA), complemented by offices in São Paulo (Brazil), Lisbon (Portugal), and Yokohama (Japan). We collaborate with a wide spectrum of businesses, from budding enterprises to globally recognized corporations.

Our diverse clientele includes sectors such as broadcasting, automotive, government, pharmaceuticals, and many others.

Our clients benefit from our team’s deep roots in the TPS/Lean philosophy, honed by former Toyota managers, engineers, and executives who are intimately familiar with Toyota’s philosophy. This unique background offers insights that go above standard Lean tools.

What sets Honsha apart is our tailored approach. We take the time to understand each client’s business. Before introducing any techniques, our team immerses itself in the company’s culture, identifies areas for growth, and then develops targeted strategies for visible results.

More than just implementing tools, we empower each client to build a robust foundation, fostering self-reliance and sustainable improvement.

Our Mission

To develop capabilities within organizations so they can achieve excellence while utilizing their own resources.

Honsha is a Japanese word that translates to ‘Headquarters’ or ‘Origin.’
