Advertiser Spotlight: The CLBM, LLC

The CLBM, LLC has been an advertiser on the LeanBlog for a few months now. You undoubtedly know Bob Emiliani from our podcasts (Episodes #30, #38, and #48). I’ve also reviewed many of his books (click the “Emiliani” link at the bottom of the post and they should come up).

In addition to his roles as a manager, educator, and executive trainer for Lean leadership, Bob is the author of six books. His books focus on important aspects of Lean management and leadership, including his highlighting of Toyota’s “respect for people” principle.

He has written the only book that documents an actually company’s enterprise-wide Lean transformation, Better Thinking, Better Results, which is used widely as a Lean transformation manual for executives (and a warning about what can happen after a change in executive leadership, as detailed in the updated edition). Bob wrote the only leadership workbook of its kind for managers titled Practical Lean Leadership: A Strategic Leadership Guide For Executives, and is the author of the 4-volume series of books titled REAL LEAN (the 4th book in the series is just out and I am looking forward to reading it).

These books contain extensive research into historical aspects of Lean management and identifies ways to improve efforts to implement and sustain Lean management. Bob’s next book (as he hinted at in Podcast #48) will be published in late January. It is a special reprint edition of a long-forgotten book written by a 1920s pioneer in flow production whose work is comparable to the great Taiichi Ohno.

Bob’s books are cutting-edge and contain a lot of useful, practical information. I highly recommend them to you. Treat yourself (or a friend or colleague) to a holiday gift!
