New LEI Book: "Reflections on Lean"


Reflections on Lean

Thanks to the folks at the LEI for giving me a copy of their new monograph. This slick little book is more like a collection of blog posts or little stories from Lean practitioners. It's a combination of thoughts and reflections on how Lean has impacted people's workplaces, careers or lives. It's sure to be a thought starter as you reflect on your own Lean journey.

One example (picked somewhat randomly):

“Lean should not have ‘changed' anyone's life! If it has, you've done it incorrectly. Lean should be constantly ‘changing' your life – pushing you to the next level regardless of where you may happen to be today.” — Tom Truxell, Rexnord, Assembly Supervisor, Virginia USA

What do you think of that statement? Have you read the book, do you have any favorites? How has Lean changed your life (or how is it being changed?)
