Toyota wanted to venture into the U.S. market and needed a factory to do so
Production and management system was changed at the GM factory Toyota introduced Andon system , giving workers the right to stop the production line if there were any problems
GM worried that this would affect productions but recognized Toyota's culture
Turned out to be successful , employee absenteeism dropped below 2% , factory became one of GM's best factories Moving through to adaptation # Refrain from judging
# Do not perceive personal teachings and behaviors to be the best or the most accurate

-> Everybody has their own beliefs, cultures and behavior
-> This will prevent misunderstandings and conflicts
-> Accept a worldview over a personal view - By doing more than just adapting my own way of doing things based on the other culture's way of doing things
- Requires more sacrifice

2) Open-mindset (worldview)
3) Responsibility for personal actions and behavior
4) Cultural sensitivity
5) Cultural humility Acceptance: To embrace objectivity and abandoning notions or right & wrong, to be able to display respect for others' cultures, to prevent exclusion of someone because of his/her difference
