“Most Business Processes Are 90% Waste and 10% Value-Added Work”
Jeffrey K. Liker, The Toyota Way: 14 Management Principles from the World's Greatest Manufacturer

“Every team member has the responsibility to stop the line every time they see something that is out of standard. That's how we put the responsibility for quality in the hands of our team members.”
Jeffrey K. Liker, The Toyota Way: 14 Management Principles from the World's Greatest Manufacturer

Jeffrey K. Liker, The Toyota Way to Lean Leadership: Achieving and Sustaining Excellence Through Leadership Development
