Publisher's Summary

The Toyota Production System may be one of the world's most-vaunted management approaches, but it isn't the only reason for the company's success. A new study reveals that Toyota's culture of contradictions generates innovative ideas and allows the company to pull ahead of competitors - sometimes incrementally, sometimes radically. This article was first published in the June 2008 issue of Harvard Business Review.
