Established in 2001 due to the company’s global expansion, Toyota sums up its aim for quality in “The Toyota Way”.
Comprised of two main pillars –“Continuous Improvement” and “Respect for People” — Toyota clarified this new philosophy because it felt it needed to present new guidelines, values and business methods for its employees who are now working all over the world and represent different cultures.
