The Toyota Way is our simple framework for applying Toyota’s Guiding Principles and building the kind of company we want to be. The Toyota Way defines the fundamental values and business methods all our people should apply in every aspect of their day-to-day work, at every level of the company, worldwide. It is the foundation of our corporate culture. We will continue to develop the Toyota Way to keep pace and remain effective and relevant in an ever-changing world, so we keep it under constant scrutiny to see how it can be developed and improved.
The Toyota Way is built on two pillars: Continuous Improvement, which takes in the concepts of Challenge, Kaizen and Genchi Genbutsu, and Respect for People, which embraces Respect and Teamwork.
