New Lean Book: Andy & Me: Crisis And Transformation On The Lean Journey


    Andy & Me: Crisis And Transformation On The Lean Journey

    This is a new “business novel”, ala The Goal. I enjoyed the book and thought it did a good job of showing the “sensei” thought process, focusing on day to day management of factory operations, driving continuous improvement and PDCA cycles. The book does not focus intensely on the typical “lean tools”, but there are other good books (including Lean Production Simplified, by the same author, that do this). This book focuses on daily production tracking and problem solving processes and some typical cultural challenges found in a lean transformation. If you've gone through a lean transformation effort, the book will seem pretty familiar to you.
