TPS can be seen as a way of life because it involves changing the culture and mindset of an organisation to embrace problem-solving, learning, and innovation at all levels. TPS is not just a set of tools or techniques, but a holistic approach that requires commitment, discipline, and leadership.
The Toyota Way is a set of principles and behaviours that underlie the Toyota Production System and the Toyota culture. It consists of two pillars: continuous improvement and respect for people. Simple but often overlooked, The Toyota Way guides our behaviour and is the glue which ensures change is sustained.

How it works

Three day in-depth study


The Toyota Lean Management Centre will study 11 key areas of your business, providing you with an opportunity to study your key processes, as well as a chance to measure your understanding of the Toyota Production System and The Toyota Way.


The three day diagnostic process concludes with a presentation. Drawing on The Toyota Way we encourage clients to demonstrate teamwork and invite the whole management team to this presentation.

Linked to TPS and The Toyota Way we will explain the opportunities that have been identified and the principles which have guided us to these conclusions.

The final slide will be an outline plan for improvement. Without obligation we can advise what support we would be able to provide to help clients achieve this plan.

Action Plan

We will work with clients who wish to be supported by us to develop a detailed action plan which typically lasts between four and 12 weeks.

You will identify appropriate resource who we will coach and guide to ensure they develop as the team tackles a pilot area.

Our aim is to leave behind a team that can replicate this change in other areas without the ongoing cost of consultants.
