The Toyota way to continuous improvement : linking strategy with operational excellence to achieve superior performance by Jeffrey K Liker( Book )

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During Toyota's highly publicized recalls of 2009 and 2010, the legendary carmaker's 60-year-old reputation for operational excellence was put under the microscope. Business pundits wondered out loud if Toyota's quality levels had decreased dramatically, while the harshest critics predicted the end of the company as we know it. For the most part, the government's findings absolved Toyota of serious defects and accidents, and Toyota recovered rapidly--but mistakes were made, which showed that Toyota is not perfect. In fact, there is always opportunity for improvement in every process. --. - In his bestselling business management classic The Toyota Way, Jeffrey Liker introduced the world to the foundational principles that have made Toyota the envy of companies around the world. Now, in The Toyota Way to Continuous Improvement, Liker teams up with former Toyota production engineer James Franz to explain the underlying thinking behind continuous improvement and why any company needs a disciplined approach to process improvement in every part of the organization. --Book Jacket
