Publisher's Summary

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.

This story follows Tom Pappas and Rachel Armstrong, senior leaders at a desperate automotive company as they try to implement a Lean management system across an entire platform, the Chloe, a breakthrough "green" car. The future of the company is at stake. Can Tom and Rachel, supported by Andy Saito - a retired, reclusive Toyota executive - regain the trust and respect of the customer? Can a venerable but dying company implement Lean practices to every part of their business and learn a new, more effective way of managing?

  • Shows you how to use the Lean quality improvement method to fix not just a manufacturing system, but an entire company, including management, design, marketing, and supply chain
  • Written by Pascal Dennis, author of four books on Lean practices and winner of the coveted Shingo Prize for outstanding research contributing to operational excellence
  • Originally developed by Toyota, the Lean approach to quality improvement has gained a worldwide following and helped turn around enumerable struggling businesses

If your business is treading water - or sinking in the waves - The Remedy will show you how to put Lean processes to work in every functional area for long-term business survival and success.

    "Good performance, not a great 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

    "Some good points"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Not on Audible. I think the illustrations are important and they are not offered as a supplement to the audiobook like some other books like The First 90 Days".


    Has The Remedy turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. Although I'm not interested in the personal backgrounds of the characters or the love interest, or martial arts prowess of the main character, this book offers some good points. Points that are so deep that they may get lost in the unnecessary story.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Kent Cassella?

    Yes


    Could you see The Remedy being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Let me first say, I'm not a fan of fiction. From a lean perspective, there are a lot of very strong deep points, which I like. The book has merit to prime the reader to do more research and testing on the subject
