Mit seiner Unternehmensführung ist Toyota seit langem Vorbild für Firmen aus den unterschiedlichsten Branchen. Fast alle Automobilhersteller versuchten mehr oder weniger erfolgreich das legendäre Toyota-Produktionssystem (TPS) zu kopieren, das zum Ziel hat, die Kundenzufriedenheit in den drei Bereichen Qualität, Lieferzeit und Kosten zu erhöhen. Aufgrund des verschärften Wettbewerbs in der Automobilbranche drängt sich jetzt die Frage nach den Faktoren des Erfolgs immer mehr in den Mittelpunkt. Jeffrey K. Liker befasst sich in seinem Buch „Der Toyota Weg“ ausführlich mit dem warum und wieso. Aus zahlreichen Interviews und eigenen Anschauungen filtert der Autor die 14 Managementprinzipien heraus, die den Kern des Toyota-Erfolgs ausmachen. Diese Prinzipien untermauert er eindrucksvoll mit einer Fülle von Details, Anekdoten und Interview-Auszügen. Leicht verständlich erklärt er dem Leser die Managementsysteme, die Denkweise und die Philosophie, auf denen der Erfolg von Toyota basiert. So vermittelt er wertvolle Erkenntnisse, die sich auf jeden beliebigen Geschäftszweig bzw. jede Geschäftssituation übertragen lassen.
Yuval Noah Harari ist der Weltstar unter den Historikern. In «Eine kurze Geschichte der Menschheit» erzählte er vom Aufstieg des Homo Sapiens zum Herrn der Welt. In «Homo Deus» ging es um die Zukunft unserer Spezies. Sein neues Buch schaut auf das Hier und Jetzt und konfrontiert uns mit den drängenden Fragen unserer Zeit.

Doch jetzt setzen uns die heraufziehende ökologische Krise, die wachsende Bedrohung durch Massenvernichtungswaffen und der Aufstieg neuer disruptiver Technologien unter Zeitdruck. Bald schon wird irgendjemand darüber entscheiden müssen, wie wir die Macht nutzen, die künstliche Intelligenz und Biotechnologie bereit halten. Dieses Buch will möglichst viele Menschen dazu anregen, sich an den großen Debatten unserer Zeit zu beteiligen, damit die Antworten nicht von den blinden Kräften des Marktes gegeben werden.
