Video - Toyota

This video was too good to pass up and conveys some valuable lessons for not only US automakers but just about any other organization. Toyota is King in the automobile world right now and american automakers are scrambling to figure out what is wrong. Is it American culture? I think not. The following video (Internet Explorer may be required) takes a tour of a Toyota plant in Kentucky with American workers. If only American automakers could embrace change and dynamism like Toyota. Why they do not do this is another story. I would rather not dwell on what is wrong and instead focus on the solution. You will have to bear through an unrelated story about a Britain-France merger in the 1950's for the first 60 seconds. The wait is worth it. Full Story
