New Business Novel Brings Key Lean Thinking Tools to Life


Press Release from Lean Enterprise Institute

I would be interested in reading this, particularly to see how it compares to another recent lean “business novel” called Andy & Me. A link to more detailed information about “The Gold Mine” can be found on the LEI website by clicking here.

If anyone is first to read this and would like to post your review of the book (or any other lean book) let me know. Click the “Email Mark” link that's in the right hand column of this page.

    This book takes you through the journey into lean and shows how the
    transformation can be made, it details the sequence of events and does so in
    a easy to follow logic. I am heading up a lean transformation at my company
    and saw so many parallels between what I face on a daily basis, and the
    story in the book, it is not a text book of the individual lean tools but
    there is enough in there to prick your interest to go and find out more
    about the specifics when they are needed.

    On a different level it was also a good story, for anyone remotely
    interested in industrial transformation.

    Hope you enjoy it.
