This study aims to analyze the lesson study management of SMP Lokon St. Nikolaus Tomohon that covers planning, implementation (plan, do, see), evaluation, supporting and inhibiting factors, and problem solution. It used a qualitative method, and data collection was conducted through interviews, observations, and documentation. Results showed that lesson study planning was done through internal meeting of the school members, workshop planning, training for learning plans implementation, preparation of open class schedule, selection of teacher models and observer. The implementation phase of lesson study covered implementation of open class, the school principal an observer, learning plans implementation and reflection on learning process. The evaluation was accomplished before, during, and after the lesson study process. The lesson study program is strongly supported, since it is taken as school program, school commitment is strong, teachers are willing to participate in the lesson study, and there are high enthusiasm of the model teacher and observer, workshop and training implementation, sufficient learning facilities, solid executing team, good collaborative and collegial spirit, and mentoring of lesson study sources. Nevertheless, it is also inhibited by difficulty in open class schedule preparation, short time allocation for lesson study, and limited sources of lesson study. Therefore, it is necessary to have review on open class schedule, teacher preparation as lesson study expert, and teacher’s commitment in school activities. The principal should also condition and plan the school work programs well, so that the school residents could participate in from the planning process, implementation, and evaluation of the lesson study.
