Total Quality Management of Takata Student’s Name Institution’s Name Abstract Takata Corporation began operations in 1933 and has grown to be a multinational company. Takata is located in Japan, a country of other multinationals like Toyota. A company, the age of Takata, should have known better to engage in total quality management for over the eight decades the company has operated. Like most companies, Takata stood by the sides of quality management until a disaster well-choreographed in 1998 came to pass in 2012; the disaster has since forced the corporation to adopt a culture of total quality management. Takata has had to recall the use of its airbags in millions, and this is the largest recall in the history of automobiles.
