1) What structure would be suitable for Toyota and why? For example: a flat or tall structure?

REPORT

Managers and HR professionals have the important job of organising people so that they can effectively perform organisational activities. The goal of HRM is to maximise the productivity of an organisation by maximising the effectiveness of its employees while simultaneously improving their work life and treating them as valuable resources. In relation to this, use the case study below and answer the following four questions.

 

Case Study: Toyota

 

Toyota has long been praised for its efficiency and effectiveness, but there were some problems in the early 21st century that caused the company to re-examine its organizational structure.

 

The company’s headquarters in Japan made all the major decisions. Individual business units did not communicate with each other, and all communications had to go through the headquarters.

 

In which the most senior executives make all of the decisions for the entire organisation. It is typified by little delegation of authority, and all information flows one way: from the top down. For example, executives in U.S. plants are closely monitored by a Japanese counterpart who makes sure the American executive is following structured protocols.

 

Historically, Toyota and its brand were synonymous with quality. In fact, in 1989 when there were problems with Toyota`s Lexus lines, the cars were recalled and fixed efficiently, showing the ‘customer first’ policy in action.

 

Beginning in the 1990s the organization grew faster than expected - in fact, there was a 6% growth in 2009 alone. This fast growth and the need to produce more and more resulted in some problems with production. In 2009, brakes on certain models were found to have issues. While the problem was known by the upper level executives of Toyota, they did nothing about it until the U.S. transportation secretary confronted them.

Insta Research is a very helpful place to buy a resume in the first place. I gave them my details and did not expect that they would come up with such an exclusive design. My personality is professionally enhanced through the resume made by them. I am thankful for the depth of my heart as I would have never approached that level of excellence in my resume. Wish you good luck ahead and again thank you!
