Lean Classic

Creating a Lean Culture is the premiere workbook on how to implement lean within your organization. The author gives you step by step directions and detailed case studies to show what success and failure look like and what you can learn from success and failure. Each chapter ends with a basic quiz that allows you to access the current status of your organization.

Toyota is mentioned a couple times in this book; however, this isn't about copying what Toyota it does. This book is based on research conducted by the author primarily in organizations other than Toyota or the automotive industry.

This is my second time reading the book, and each time I get so much out of it. The audio narrator and the topic were excellent; however, the PDF is almost a requirement if you are going to listen to this audiobook. It is so rich with ideas that are better conveyed visually that a reader could become lost without this PDF.

In general an excellent read and will be part of my annual re-read books
