    Mark,
    Thank you for the work on this blog. I am not able to follow it every day, but do try to keep tabs on what is going on.

    As co-author of The Toyota Way Fieldbook with Jeffrey Liker I am interested in your feedback on the book. When we began to write the book our intent was to provide more detailed insights into the philosophies and concepts of TPS as they relate to actual application. We did not want to write another “lean tools” book as there a number of very good ones already. In the spirit of continuous improvement we are interested in feedback on areas where the book helped people that are implementing, and areas where it fell short. We look forward to your comments and those of your readers.
    Thanks,
    David Meier

    Hi David,

    I got your book in Düsseldorf while shopping at SternVerlag Buchhandlung. As I own the book “The Toyota Way” the fieldbook is a good chance to get things moving (difficult but one has to start;-)).

    Thanks a lot for writing this practical book:-)

    I hope I will be able to convince my boss and my colleagues to start off with the lean journey.

    Regards from Leipzig

    Ralf,
    Thank you for that feedback. It is amazing to me to think that the book would be for sale in Dusseldorf! It is truly a small world now. Glad you were able to find it and I hope it helps you get the journey started. Keep us posted on your progress.

    All the best,

    David Meier

    Well can someone post standardized work so that I don’t post twice!! Hmm, I am a limited blogger. Sorry for the double!

    No worries, David. It’s a systemic problem, not operator error.

    I am using the Fieldbook for ideas, methods and best practices for the application of Lean to lending in a bank. Does anyone have any examples of A3 reports for service processes like loan application, underwriting approval and closing?
