【発表要旨】
Adapting to change requires companies to cultivate capability in people, systems and organizations and innovate beyond dated methods created by previous success. Based on a three-year comparative analysis of interviews and field research at corporate training facilities in Japan, my talk will show how Toyota Motor Corporation engages this challenge by cultivating problem solving acumen, such as the “Toyota Way”, at every level in the organization. Toyota has evolved a global corporate training process characterized by a resource-intensive and long-term approach to employee development that builds capability in the organization, in systems, and in people by: * Systematically identifying and developing talent to its fullest potential * Outfitting employees with the tools to enable change * Developing leaders who champion change by observing, listening and learning * Cultivating a cultural mindset of cooperative and collaborative performance Despite this thorough approach to organizational development and its emphasis on continuous improvement, the recent convergence of external (e.g. financial meltdowns, eroding profits) and internal pressures (e.g. production issues, employee retention) have exposed weaknesses – several of them predicted in previous studies – in Toyota’s global approach to intra-organizational problem solving. In closing, I will highlight some of the changes in human resource development Toyota has set in motion to mitigate these issues.
