Le modèle Toyota : 14 principes qui feront la réussite de votre entreprise by Jeffrey K Liker( Book )

65 editions published between 2000 and 2019 in 11 languages and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Toyota a attiré l'attention pour la première fois dans les années 1980, lorsqu'il est devenu évident que ses voitures avaient quelque chose de particulier : une durée de vie bien supérieure à la moyenne, un besoin de réparations très faible. A quoi tient cette réussite ? Quelles sont les raisons qui ont fait de Toyota la référence parmi les constructeurs automobiles ? "Le modèle Toyota" a deux piliers : Le système de production propre à Toyota (le TPS, Toyota Production System ), dont Jeffrey Liker explique ici les fondements que sont le lean et le juste à temps. Une conception managériale qui repose sur une culture d'amélioration continue des processus et un souci constant de motivation et de formation des salariés. Ces deux piliers se déclinent en 14 principes qui peuvent être reproduits dans n'importe quelle entreprise pour améliorer n'importe quel processus opérationnel, de la vente au développement des produits, au marketing et à la logistique et la gestion. C'est tout le propos de Jeffrey Liker, qui montre ici comment appliquer avec succès les principes de Toyota à votre entreprise
Becoming lean : inside stories of U.S. manufacturers by Jeffrey K Liker( Book )

17 editions published between 1997 and 2006 in English and held by 607 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is Lean?Pure and simple, lean is reducing the time from customer order to manufacturing by eliminating non-value-added waste in the production stream. The ideal of a lean system is one-piece flow, because a lean manufacturer is continuously improving. Most other books on lean management focus on technical methods and offer a picture of how a lean system should look like. Other books provide snapshots of companies before and after lean was implemented. This is the first book to provide technical descriptions of successful solutions and performance improvements. It's also the first book to go beyond snapshots and includes powerful first-hand accounts of the complete process of change; its impact on the entire organization; and the rewards and benefits of becoming lean. At the heart of Becoming Lean are the stories of American manufacturers that have successfully implemented lean methods. The writers offer personalized accounts of their organization's lean transformation. You have a unique opportunity to go inside the implementation process and see what worked, what didn't, and why

During Toyota's highly publicized recalls of 2009 and 2010, the legendary carmaker's 60-year-old reputation for operational excellence was put under the microscope. Business pundits wondered out loud if Toyota's quality levels had decreased dramatically, while the harshest critics predicted the end of the company as we know it. For the most part, the government's findings absolved Toyota of serious defects and accidents, and Toyota recovered rapidly--but mistakes were made, which showed that Toyota is not perfect. In fact, there is always opportunity for improvement in every process

Toyota, un modèle de gestion de crise : la force du management responsable by Jeffrey K Liker( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in French and English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En 2010, alors que l'économie mondiale est en pleine récession, et que Toyota subit déjà une chute vertigineuse de ses ventes, une remise en cause de la sécurité de ses véhicules déclenche une véritable crise médiatique mettant alors l'entreprise en grave péril. Aujourd'hui, elle a retrouvé sa place de numéro un mondial de l'automobile. Comment a-t-elle réussi ? Quels enseignements peuton tirer de la force de son management ? Tout aussi essentiel que Modèle Toyota, ce livre permet de comprendre la supériorité opérationnelle de l'entreprise, qui repose non pas sur des solutions d'urgence mais sur la culture qui l'a toujours guidée. En effet, technologie, capital, usines, modes de distribution, tout cela peut être copié. Mais les valeurs, en période de crise, se révèlent plus efficaces qu'une coûteuse stratégie de communication. La philosophie hansei et les principes du lean management sont les aspects les plus connus de la culture d'entreprise de Toyota. Ainsi, lors de la crise financière, au lieu de licencier, Toyota, a fait suivre à ses employés une formation au kaizen, ou principe de l'amélioration continue. Et au beau milieu de la grave crise médiatique, elle a choisi de rappeler plus de 10 millions de véhicules, pour finalement être lavée de tout soupçon par la NASA en 2011. La force de Toyota réside dans le fait de s'être tournée vers sa culture pour réagir. Or chaque entreprise possède et se forge une culture sur laquelle elle doit pouvoir s'appuyer. Véritable leçon de management responsable, cet ouvrage montre comment une entreprise peut transformer une crise en opportunité en s'inspirant de la réussite de Toyota ainsi qu'en s'interrogeant sur ses propres valeurs

Talent Toyota : les hommes au coeur de la réussite by Jeffrey K Liker( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in French and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quel est le secret de Toyota ? cette entreprise copiée dans le monde entier, jamais égalée, et dont le succès est phénoménal ? " Nous ne fabriquons pas seulement des voitures : nous fabriquons des hommes " répondent ses dirigeants. Et c'est là qu'est leur force. Si toutes les entreprises ont accès aux mêmes technologies, aux mêmes machines, aux mêmes matières premières et au même réservoir d'employés potentiels, la différence est que chez Toyota, ce sont les individus qui cultivent leur réussite. L'entreprise offre à ses collaborateurs non seulement des récompenses, mais aussi des opportunités de formation continue et des plans de carrière. En retour, elle attend d'eux initiative, motivation et volonté d'assumer différents rôles et responsabilités. Après Le Modèle Toyota, qui décrivait le modèle d'excellence articulé autour du principe des 4P (Philosophy, People, Problem resolution, Process). Jeffrey Liker et David Meier présentent la méthodologie rigoureuse appliquée par ce géant mondial pour former en interne des individus performants et motivés pour atteindre les objectifs spécifiques de Toyota. Les auteurs proposent de nombreuses pistes et des exemples pour étendre la philosophie Toyota à d'autres secteurs d'activité, tout en soulignant constamment les principes de base de celle-ci. En effet, il ne suffit pas d'imiter ses techniques pour reproduire le succès d'une entreprise : il faut aussi s'imprégner de l'état d'esprit du leadership qui a inspiré son créateur.
