Toyota who were pioneers of LEAN practices were able to transform and become the leader in automobile manufacturing. Their book "The Toyota Way" the BIBLE for lean, outlines the fourteen main principles that enables them to achieve operational excellence and become one of the most profitable manufacturing companies.
