The Toyota Way: 14 Principles
Principle 7: Use visual controls so no problems are hidden.

Design simple visual systems to support flow & pull.
Reduce reports to one piece of paper when possible

Proven process generally takes precedence over new technology
Conduct actual tests before implementing new technology.

Train exceptional individuals and teams to work within the company philosophy.

The Toyota Way: 14 Principles
Principle 12: Go and see for yourself to thoroughly understand the situation (genchi genbutsu).
Go and see at the source, personally verify data.
Think and speak on verified data.
Top level management should go and see for themselves so they don't have a superficial understanding of the situation.
Principle 3: Use "pull" systems to avoid overproduction.

Be responsive to customer demand; don't rely on computer schedules.
Principle 6: Standardized tasks are the foundation for continuous improvement & employee empowerment.
Use stable, repeatable methods everywhere
Standardize today's best practices.
Principle 9: Grow leaders who thoroughly understand the work, live the philosophy, and teach it to others.

Principle 11: Respect your extended network of partners and suppliers by challenging them and helping them improve.
Respect for partners and suppliers; treat them as an extension of the business
Challenge outside business partners to grow and develop.

Do not pick a single direction and go down that one path until all alternatives have been considered.
When one path has been picked, move quickly but cautiously.

Principle 14: Become a learning organization through relentless reflection (hansei) and continuous improvement (kaizen).
Use continuous improvement tools to determine root cause of inefficiencies and apply effective countermeasures.
Design processes that require almost no inventory - waste will become exposed this way, and employees can use kaizen to eliminate it.
Protect organizational knowledge by developing stable personnel, slow promotion, and very careful succession systems.
Reflect (hansei) at key milestones and at the end of projects to identify shortcomings and develop countermeasures to avoid the same mistakes again.
