“We’ve got nothing, technology-wise, that anyone else can’t
have. There is no secret Toyota quality machine out there.
The quality machine is the workforce-the team members on
the paint line, the suppliers, the engineers-everybody who
has a hand in production takes the attitude that we are

“The person who figures out how to harness the collective
genius of the people in his or her organization is going to
blow the competitions away.”
-CEO of Citibank
