Hey @ElonMusk: Toyota Never Thought “Humans are Underrated”

Over the past month, there’s been so much in the news about Tesla. This column from Joann Muller, who covers the auto industry for Forbes, caught my eye again recently:

“Musk Thinks Tesla Will School Toyota On Lean Manufacturing; Fixing Model 3 Launch Would Be A Start”

It’s not a direct quote (I don’t think) from CEO Elon Musk that they will “school” Toyota on Lean manufacturing.

I’d suggest there’s little evidence that Musk and Elon are even really trying Lean manufacturing as a strategy or a mindset. He’s doing his own thing and will sink or swim accordingly.
