The Toyota Way

Section Manager Development Programme

About

Toyota established Toyota Manufacturing UK (TMUK) in 1989. TMUK has two manufacturing plants in England, employing over 4,000 people.

Objective

The 14 Principles of the Toyota Way is a management philosophy used to drive consistency across the corporation globally.

TMUK wanted an event that would develop the behaviours that support the core competencies of the Toyota Way.

Solution

Impact UK worked in partnership with the TMUK’s Management Development team, to design a programme that would challenge thinking around the competencies and bring the Toyota Way to life.

By using a mix of experiential projects and facilitated reviews, the programme allows the Section Managers to learn, practice and reflect on the competencies whilst developing the required behaviours in a safe and supportive environment.

Result

Results from the initial Section Managers’ programmes have exceeded expectations and TMUK are seeing real business benefits.
