Well-narrated story about the development of Lean Leadership at TOYOTA. I especially enjoyed the continuous focus on believing that their strategy of building competences will prevail instead of adopting the usual major layoff/hiring process.
Every person who has been through the "Ohno Circle" process and not let their ego get the best of them
Really, a movie about Lean Leadership at TOYOTA? With Brad Pitt as Gary Convis?
The one reason why i didn't give this book a 5-star rating is because of the many abbreviations and unique terms used throughout the book. I work with Lean on a daily basis and thus understand most, if not all of them, but i can definitely see some people not getting optimal value out of this book simply due to the many complicated abbreviations and terms you have to remember.
I would recommend this to people who find the typical Lean books diificult to understand, as the story perspective provides an interesting way of communicating the message, which could lead to better understanding.
However, as a Lean professional, I am not impressed with the quality of the story and too much of it seems to be copying of exisiting Lean material out there. I would not recommend it to my fellow Lean professionals
I felt like all of a sudden the writer needed an ending. It did not provide a good closure to the story in my opinion
A good voice can bring life to a not so great story which is very much the case for this book
It would depend on the focus. If focused on the remedy, then yes. If focused on the love story, then no
I like the idea but the story could have been done better
