  • TOYOTA – CRISIS MANAGEMENT FAILURE Toyota’s communication strategy: “Too little, too late” Beyond the quality problem Toyota mismanaged the crisis
  • TOYOTA Basic Rules Violated • For senior mgmt: crises must become their #1 priority immediately. • Sticking accelerators in 2008 - not treated as a serious matter
  • TOYOTA Basic Rules violated Find facts & solutions fast: - Toyota managers at first in denial - accepted a ‘patch’ (remove floor mats), not solution - when crisis exploded -- engineering solution/stopped production - Even today no one outside of Toyota knows what the real problems are – open to speculation and rumors
  • TOYOTA Basic rules violated Communicate fully and accurately: - to all constituents to sustain trust - maintain trust with a recall What Toyota did: hushed problem and hoped it go away
