There was a trial. On the other hand, Toyota cases got it right. When they witnessed the American success with mass production, they were interested in their cost-reducing techniques. However, they knew for their Japanese market and their company culture, they could not mass-produce like the Americans. That is why they developed the lean production with an initial component of mass production. In summation, Toyota borrowed general ideas from Ford; however, they tweaked that idea to fit the market they serve. Another example, of not taking the Contingency Theory into account is the attempt at a common currency in South America. The European countries had the right conditions to come together that South America cannot match. For one, the European nations were always tied by a common identity in being in world war paths. They also have a common transportation system, which allows country-like travel, instead of continent-travel. Their political structure stabilized, and somewhat starting mirroring with consistency across the land.

    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.
