The Toyota Way to Continuous Improvement, Liker teams up with former Toyota production engineer James Franz to explain the underlying thinking behind continuous improvement and why any company needs a disciplined approach to process improvement in every part of the organization.

Build a sustainable lean process with a well-defined purpose. Create a system that reveals problems. Teach every leader and team member at every level the art of PDCA for process improvement.
