dc.description.abstractPurpose: The goal of this work was to investigate the managerial practices of today to understand if Toyota is sheltering themselves from these newer practices or embracing them like most believe. Design/methodology/approach: This work utilizes a new form of data mining named Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA) to analyze an organizations ideal management practices.
