What is Most Important - Online LinkindIN Poll by Toyota Manager

Update: 3/23/2013...sort of old news. However, it is interesting to see the results four years later after this poll was posted on LinkedIn by a Toyota manager.

Old post:

Interesting poll over at LinkedIN. A Toyota Manager posted this simple question:

What is MOST important?

Product Development
Process Development
People Development
Results Focused

There are not too many responses yet, but perhaps you will be interested in the results. For example, about 30% of the respondents who said "Results Focused" was most important were executive or owner level. Mean anything to you? Want to see more results? Go to the hyperlink.

Very suprised People Development did not show up for consultants. Yes, consultants want results and process improvement, but it is best done through people development. Peter Block's "Flawless Consulting" even states a consultant's ultimate goal is to transfer knowledge.

I am a little curious about the poll question. My thought is that I want to solve a problem, thus I use PDCA to check results. People, process, product and any other type of development are activities to get the desired results. I have seen development/improvement projects fail to yield results.

Results are the 'end of the pipe' measurement that varify if you were doing the right things. I couldn't answer the survey by picking one over the other. Development/improvements and results are tied together.
