I have been studying ways to improve organisations for a long time and the ideas provided in High-Velocity Edge just tied up all the loose ends for me. This book should provide the missing piece of the puzzle for Lean practitioners who understand that the tools aren't what make Toyota great (and they also won't keep any organisation ahead of the pack). The ideas are stunningly simple and effective yet worlds away from how most organisations choose to operate.
4 capabilities of high velocity organisations are presented, brought to life with stories and examples from a number of organisations. It is a deep dive into what the 4 capabilities mean and look like and how they add up to extraordinary results for the rare organisations that have embraced them. I found this book inspirational.
