The Toyota Way

The book describes the strategies and principles used by the world's biggest car manufacturer to reach the position it has acquired today.

Toyota was the company that gave the world "Lean Manufacturing" concept which helped it make highest quality cars at lowest prices and thus beat GM on their home turf.

The book describes how Toyota achieved the "lean Manufacturing" and other unique aspects of production, supply chain and human resource management used by Toyota (and then by several other Japanese firms).\

Though Toyota is a car maker, the management principles described are equally applicable to all kinds of businesses whether in manufacturing or services sector.

A must read for all entrepreneurs and managers.

Awesome Book

The book is one of the best decriptions i have ever come across for the Toyota Production system which is the benchmark for the production systems across the world. It is a must read for people who are into operations of product development or into services so that they improvise the efficiencies of this well developed system into the organisation. Would also urge the MBAs intrested in operations to study this book, which will help them understand the subject conceptually .
