    A powerful business fable that shows you how to spread Lean business practices to every function of your business. Pascal Dennis is a Lean-business learner and practitioner who has written four books on the subject of Lean business practices. In The Remedy, he shows how Lean business practices can be expanded from manufacturing to all the other areas of your business - including design, engineering, sales, and marketing and all processes in between - and how doing so builds a more efficient organization at every level.

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    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


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    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


    What does Kent Cassella bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A good voice can bring life to a not so great story which is very much the case for this book


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    It would depend on the focus. If focused on the remedy, then yes. If focused on the love story, then no


    Any additional comments?

    I like the idea but the story could have been done better

  • The Toyota Way to Lean Leadership: Achieving and Sustaining Excellence Through Leadership Development

    The missing link to long-term Lean success! Despite the fact that companies worldwide have adopted Lean production, none has sustained the same levels of excellence as Toyota. Why? Leadership. In The Toyota Way to Lean Leadership, Jeffrey Liker and Gary L. Convis, a former executive V.P. and managing officer of Toyota, help executives and senior managers get employees to refocus their efforts - from simply performing their singular function to continuously improving in collaboration across the organization.

    Story
    What did you love best about The Toyota Way to Lean Leadership?

    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.


    Which character – as performed by Jim Meskimen – was your favorite?

    Every person who has been through the "Ohno Circle" process and not let their ego get the best of them


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Really, a movie about Lean Leadership at TOYOTA? With Brad Pitt as Gary Convis?


    Any additional comments?

    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.
