By Jean Cunningham:
I am just re-reading a book that I read at the beginning of my lean journey in 1992. It is The New Manufacturing Challenge: Techniques for Continuous Improvement by Kiyoshi Suzaki. It is still an excellent easy to understand book about implementing lean practices. If you are serious about some specific concepts, this is a wonderful book for a reading group at your company that is adopting lean. It was published in 1987.
Don’t jump over this important gem of a book!
