    I’ve been through several of Liker’s and Womack’s books. I’ve also read “5S for Operators” – a great book for direct employees. Recently, I read “How to prevent Lean Implementation Failures” – another fantastic, easy-to-read book. It had nothing most Lean practitioners don’t already know. What it did have was a means to provide plant management with a chance to say “where do I fit in?” If I were the executive leader of my facility, this book would be on EVERY manager’s desk with a requirement of defining and understanding where you fit in.

    I love the “…for Operators” and the “… for the Shopfloor” series. “Kanban for the Shopfloor”, for example, is a very good practical book.

    “Lean Failures” is also a good book. I have a modest blog (with permission from the author) here:
