Today and Tomorrow
Commemorative Edition of Ford's 1926 Classic

Originally published in 1926, Today and Tomorrow, written by the world's most famous automaker, Henry Ford, reveals the thinking that changed industry forever.

Ford's ideas have never stopped having an impact. Taiichi Ohno, the creator of the Just-In-Time (JIT) manufacturing system, freely acknowledges that a key stimulus to JIT was his close reading of Ford. Today these same ideas have re-emerged to revitalize industry around the world.

Today and Tomorrow chronicles Ford's progressive vision. It was his credo of using low-cost, high-quality production to win market share that inspired the Japanese to do the same. In these 24 chapters, Ford discusses topics that are just as relevant today as they were in 1926, at the height of Henry Ford's success:

· Money, power, and big business
· Work standards, time, and motion
· Learning from waste
· Wages, hours, and employee motivation
· The power of education

Today, Henry Ford's ideas warrant a second look. He doubled wages, cut the price of a car in half, and produced over 2 million units a year. Time has not diminished the impact of his business philosophy, or his profound influence on worldwide industry. You will be enlightened by what you read and intrigued by the words of this colorful and remarkable man.

This updated printing of Today and Tomorrow features a new introduction by James J. Padilla, Group Vice President North America for Ford Motor Company. It also includes an enhanced selection of photos illustrating the processes and facilities Ford covers in the text as well as an updated chronology of the Ford Motor Company.
