Webinar's material (only French)

In conventional organizations, a frustrating reality persists: only 5 to 10% of employees are directly involved in problem-solving. This situation does not foster motivation among both operational staff and managers.

However, Toyota has adopted a different approach, that of the 'inverted pyramid'. Within Toyota, the entire organization is engaged in problem-solving at all levels.

There is no longer any question of leaving 90 to 95% of the personnel on the sidelines. On the contrary, everyone is encouraged to actively contribute. Managers play an essential role by providing daily support and assistance to the teams.

Reynald Debaut-Henocque, former Vice President of Toyota France, will present the necessary conditions for creating an organization where excellence is everyone's responsibility, and where managers become facilitators providing daily support to operational teams.



About Reynald Debaut-Henocque


From 1981 to 1999, he built a career as a Quality Director in the automotive supplier industry, accompanying the quality procedures revolution. His experience was gained not only with European manufacturers but also with North American ones. In 1993, he implemented the continuous improvement branch in Europe for the BTR Group.

In 1999, he joined the Toyota Group as the Quality Director of TMMF (Toyota Motor Manufacturing France) and successfully achieved the 1st Warranty Award during the launch of the "made in France" Yaris. He then broadened his horizons by taking on roles as Production Director and Supply Chain Director, contributing to the success of an industrial site that met the challenge of producing B-segment vehicles in France, with over 3 million produced in 20 years. As Vice President of Production, he subsequently prepared the site to produce 3 million vehicles in 10 years.

He was one of the key contributors to the success of Toyota Motor Manufacturing France.
