Have you thought about using Lean in your business or organization, but are not really sure how to implement it? Or perhaps you're already using Lean, but you need to get up to speed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for beginners! 6 December 2014
By JayArr - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a very well-done book IF you realize that, like most "Dummies" books, it's both a survey and it's for beginners to the field. I really enjoyed reading it through because I was looking for an intro book for an undergraduate class of generalists, not dedicated production/operations students. Its points are well-made and illustrated and it does its job in an excellent manner. If you enjoy this one, I'd recommend Womack's series of books starting with The Machine That Changed The World and its follow-up books, all available from Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding book to start my journey with 1 July 2014

As a manufacturing supervisor who is currently changing my organizations culture from a chaotic expiditers dream to a streamlined Lean culture I have found this book to be a valued reference tool to start my journey with. To truly understand the foundation and build capability and capacity with Lean I suggest purchasing this book. For Lean is not just a workplace application but a lifestyle choice.
4.0 out of 5 stars But the information is great it is the style I have a issue 19 July 2016

A bit scholarly and wordy, but the material is priceless. Too often they start to talk about a subject and then say, for more read chapter... I prefer they cut so much introductory comments and get to the meat of the matter quicker. But the information is great it is the style I have a issue.
