The Toyota WayWe accept challenges with a creative spirit and courage to realize our own dreams without losing drive or energy. We approach out work vigorously, with optimism and a sincere belief in the value of our contribution .

The Toyota WayWe strive to decide our own fate. We act with self-reliance, trusting in our own abilities. We accept responsibility for our conduct and for maintaining and improving the skills that enable us to produce added value .

The Heart of TPSMany good American companies have respect for individuals and practice kaizen and other TPT tools. BUT what is important is ;having all the elements together as a system. It must be practiced every day ion a very consistent manner-not in spurts-in a concrete way on the shop floor . -Fujio Cho

Grow leaders who understand the work and live the philosophy Grow leaders from within rather buying them from the outside Leaders must be role models of the organizations philosophy and way of operating Leaders must totally understand the organizations philosophy and operations so they can be a teacher of others

Develop exceptional people and teams who follow your organization s philosophy Create a strong stable culture where the organization s values and beliefs are shared and lived over time Train individuals and teams to work within the philosophy work very hard to reinforce this culture Use cross-functional teams to improve quality and to solve problems Remember teamwork must the learned and constantly be reinforced

Problem Solving Continual organizational learning w/KAIZEN Go see for yourself to thoroughly understand the situation-(Genchi Genbutsu) Respect and challenge your suppliers

Leaders must go and see problems for themselves Solve problems and improve processes by going to the source and personally observe and verify the data Think and speak based on personally verified data and Even high level leaders need to follow this method so they will have more that superficial understanding of the problem and/or situation
