It's been over 15 years since Toyota originally announced their guiding principles in what they called The Toyota Way. Since then they have been used in a variety of fields and at Codeweavers we have used them as our guiding light in all of our decision making processes to great effect.
Whether it be our Continuous Delivery pipeline, our hiring process, general day to day software development or even our sales and client support processes - you can see The Toyota Way in action. You might think you have heard it all before, lean this, kaizen that - but in under an hour I'll show you the 14 principles of The Toyota Way and how we have applied each one in our own unique way to deliver great software - faster, leaner and with a higher quality than any of our competitors.
