    The missing link to long-term Lean success! Despite the fact that companies worldwide have adopted Lean production, none has sustained the same levels of excellence as Toyota. Why? Leadership. In The Toyota Way to Lean Leadership, Jeffrey Liker and Gary L. Convis, a former executive V.P. and managing officer of Toyota, help executives and senior managers get employees to refocus their efforts - from simply performing their singular function to continuously improving in collaboration across the organization.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If you are fascinated by the success of Toyota Motor Corporation and their rise to near domination of the global automobile market, this is the book for you.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The book covers in almost painstaking detail the methods used by Toyota to grow leaders from within the company. It is that approach, the nurturing of self-improving people that is the backbone of Toyota's success. I purchased many of the accompanying hardcover books for more information. The concept is simple: grow leaders and problem solvers from within. It's the patience required and the discipline to execute and stick with the plan that is hard for other companies to duplicate.


    Have you listened to any of Jim Meskimen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first time listening to the narrator. He is appropriate for a business book. He delivers the information very effectively. But this is no John Grisham novel!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definitely not. I found myself rewinding and listening again and again to make sure I understood the concepts. I have listened to it twice and will listen a third time.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book for business. The Toyota Way is really hard to duplicate and that's what gives them their competitive advantage.
