Publisher's Summary

Transforming front-line operations in a retail chain the size of Starbucks is a story in itself. This book goes further, investigating how lean thinking addressed huge demand fluctuation in a retail environment across thousands of stores, and then how baristas and managers in Newtown, Connecticut, used that system to get them through the worst week imaginable. It is a deeply personal story with global relevance.

Great book for beginners and experts in Lean

Very interesting to hear the struggles and successes at Starbucks from a Lean perspective, facing challenges that may be more similar to your organization that you might expect

Decent book. More about Starbucks than lean

It's fine and you can learn from it. But if you have read other lean books, there's very little to be gained from this book.
