Do you ever wonder how Toyota became or is
about to become the largest car conpany in the world??? Well it was'nt by sitting around doing nothing!!!

One of the main "ingredients" of Toyota's
success is attitude!!! No body works a 40
hour week at Toyota yet everyone in the
Company gets paid for every hour they work.

There is no budget at Toyota, they get a
job done with a "whatever it takes" attitude. So 99% of their jobs are finished ahead of time!!!

This 40 hour week/budget attitude is a
European/American "thing", it sucks the
spirit out of car building and makes the
whole thing dull and uninteresting, that is why Chrysler Ford and GM can't sell
because their cars are dull, because they
have a really dull aproach.

There is no challenge, everything is done
watching the clock!!!! And the bean counters watch the pennies and everything becomes dull dull dull.
