Opportunity Born Out of Failure
It's been a rough week for Toyota. First, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced it would investigate safety issues with the company's 2010 Prius Hybrid. Then Monday, Toyota decided to recall close to a half million vehicles. It's a week no company wants to endure, even Toyota, which is no stranger to pulling cars off the road. The question now is will the industry leader survive this latest public relations nightmare by turning its troubles into a learning opportunity?
"Toyota is renowned for its manufacturing prowess," writes Dean Akande. "But now it's time for the company to focus on regaining customer trust.".
Toyota: Opportunity Born Out of Failure outlines how Toyota can succeed in its time of trouble with lessons all companies should take to heart.
