Chapter 18: Case Incident #1 1. Would you consider Toyota to be an innovative organization? Why or why not? I would consider Toyota to be an innovative organization because the company has done many improvements to their cars. Of course, it depends on your definition of innovation. If we judge innovation beyond just its products as well Toyota does seem innovative. “It’s clear that on both these points-innovation as a process as well as a product, and lasting incremental innovation-Toyota excels.” I think that Toyota and their car the Prius also is an example of their innovative products. This car is very fuel efficient and different than the other cars on the market. I would consider Toyota an innovative organization because for my definition of innovation covers it as a process.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
