So is the Shingo Prize more indicative of book quality than it is for lean company performance?
Either way, congrats to Jim Womack, Dan Jones, Freddy Balle, and Michael Balle for their Shingo winning books.
Lean Solutions: I’ve read the book and we’ve discussed it much here on the blog, with the Q&A sessions Jim Womack did. There are some provocative ideas here and a lot of waste identification in consumer processes. But, I’m afraid some of the ideas here won’t be well received by those in a position to eliminate the waste. Still, good reading.
The Gold Mine: I haven’t read this one yet. It’s a novel, ala The Goal. Does anyone have comments or reviews on this one?
