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?
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.

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
a good book with thought provoking questions at the end of each chapter worth writing down and ruminating on.
I found it a little hard to follow at times, not sure if that is due to the narrator or the author taking to many tangents.
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".
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.
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
