Creating a Lean Culture: Tools to Sustain Lean Conversions

Productivity Press

Has anyone read this book on lean culture? I haven't read it, but it came up in a discussion of “standard work for leaders”. If you have any experience with the book, please post your thoughts by clicking “Comments.”

From the book description:

Highlights:

* Distinguishes the much-discussed, abstract concept of “lean culture” from the concrete, implementable practices of lean management.
* Describes and illustrates 4 key principles of lean management: leader standard work; visual controls; daily accountability process, and discipline.
* Shows how visual controls bring process focus to life, tie in lean's requirement for highly disciplined execution, and make leaders' new jobs far easier to explain, model and evaluate.
* Moves beyond models and theories of lean management to show how to implement the daily practices that are the key to implementing and sustaining a lean transformation. Lots of case examples, figures and photographs.
