I've been fortunate to be invited to participate the last two years as an author for the Society of Manufacturing Engineer's Lean Yearbook publications. The books (in magazine format) can be purchased using the links at the top of the post. The publisher has allowed me to share, for free download, my articles:

2007 Article – Article about Lean in the Laboratory in Riverside Medical Center, Kankakee IL

2008 Article – Co-authored with a colleague about the work he did with Kingston General Hospital in Ontario, Canada

Authors from the 2008 book include:

There are also many case studies from various industries. Again, check out the links at the top of the post if you're interested in buying either book.
