About Norman Bodek

Norman Bodek, the founder and late President of PCS Incorporated always had his passion in discovering the world’s greatest management wisdom to help people live better lives. He helped leaders to develop themselves to manage socially responsible organizations, and create environments where people loved coming to work. This translated to making their companies a great place to be.

Prior to PCS Inc./Press founded in 1998, Norman had founded Productivity Inc./Press in 1979 and started publishing a newsletter called PRODUCTIVITY and conducting Japan study missions to learn management processes that made Japan successful in quality improvement and productivity growth. One of the keys he found was Toyota Production System (now known as Lean) that has two pillars: Just-In-Time Production and Respect for People. With Productivity Press his focus was mostly on the Just-In-Time pillar. Most recently under PCS Press his focus changed to the people side of Lean or the the Respect-for-People pillar. 

Known as the
"Godfather of Lean"

Norman met many influential authors in Japan and translated their books into English. He published more than 200 books, fifty percent of those were works of translation of the best of Japanese management.
