Hal Macomber did his first production system project in 1974 followed by a two-year stint w/ Bank of Boston in operations research. Studying quality and just-in-time production in Japan in the mid-1980’s began the formal intro to Lean. Along the way, Hal was introduced to the work of Fernando Flores — first the study of the language-action perspective, then ontological redesign. This knowledge coupled to Lean allowed him and his collaborators to make very large scale organizational interventions.
