    How to Create Products Your Customers Value The rise and global success of Toyota inspired vast numbers of studies, articles and books on the company’s production system and culture. The authors show how the Japanese auto maker’s system for developing products has contributed to its success.

The authors show how the Japanese auto maker’s system for developing products has contributed to its success. James Morgan and Jeffrey Liker explain Toyota’s insistence on starting projects correctly, applying the best resources to them in a timely fashion and terminating wasteful processes that provide no customer benefit. The authors also portray Toyota’s approach to technology, project management tools, communication and corporate culture and compare Toyota to American auto makers. While this book is most useful to those involved in manufacturing product development, especially engineers and their managers, getAbstract recommends it to anyone who is fascinated by the world’s largest automaker and wants to learn about its integrated approach to creating cars.

    I am about 1/3 of the way through this book and I am amazed. Concepts that I have been touting for years (very different and much smaller words though). I am now looking for ways to engage the principals in a more effective an systematic way. Methods I have employed in the past (brute force and use of positional power) along with a kick-butt staff have been marginally effective. How to make it part of the institution?
