Business Statement

Panasonic
Gemba Process Innovation

Enhancing our world by providing ever greater convenience is a major challenge for people at any enterprise. Fundamental solutions to complex issues require process innovation at the actual “gemba," where things get made, distributed or sold.

Unique insight gained from over a century of manufacturing allows us to propose and enact comprehensive gemba-focused solutions that address today’s changing value network. By proactively bringing about innovation within our customers’ gemba operations, we are helping to ensure a better life, a better world.
