useful tools

As a whole, the Lean process is a group of useful tools that can be called upon to identify waste in the current paradigm either for the business as a whole or for its upcoming projects. Specific focus is also given to reducing costs and improving production whenever possible

Nice book

This book is the one I have been looking for. It doesn't get bogged down in describing what Lean is; this book describes how to implement in an existing non-lean company that is financial focused and hard-nosed. Book is no academic; this is the story of multiple successful lean transformations with real multi-national .

Awesome audio book

This book took me a bit of time to listen as it is so feature rich with great content. I often had to stop reading to think about how to apply the concepts in my own organization. The authors put a great deal of effort into footnoting and references.
