“The Toyota Intra-Company Training program is considered a dream for any employee at Abdul Latif Jameel Motors [Saudi Arabia] because it helps develop new skills and provides the opportunity of living and experiencing the Toyota culture on a daily basis.”

Throughout the program, participants delve into Japanese culture while also expand their knowledge of the ‘Toyota Way’ and ‘Kaizen’ philosophy for continuous improvement.
