Toyota brings new car models to market in half the time that it takes GM and
Ford. They have done so for decades. They do so because they have a superior
design process. It is far more sophisticated and complex that simply giving
people resources and a deadline and letting them get on with it.


Toyota also gives their line workers red-button control. They can stop the line when they need to. And the Japanese aout industry poineered the concept of line workers having a *general* knowledge of the product they produce. And the Japanese CEO/Worker differential is nowhere near the differential in America. There are many, many factors that contribute to the Toyota success.
