Perspectives from ISB

A legend passes away. I was saddened to read “Eiji Toyoda, Promoter of the Toyota Way and Engineer of Its Growth, Dies at 100.” I have learnt so much third and fourth hand about the Toyota Way. It is humbling how the philosophy of the The Toyota Way resonates in every setting. The philosophy reflects human endeavor and gives meaning to innovation and productivity improvement in any setting. It is a unique blend of the East and the West. It is also a very personal philosophy. So many firms, individuals and societies have benefitted from reading about The Toyota Way. I invite readers to contribute their personal learning here as a tribute to the legend.
