Leading the Lean Enterprise Transformation- Second Edition
Written to help executives in determining right from wrong during a Lean Initiative, Leading the Lean Enterprise Transformation shows that Lean is more about an approach than it is about tools. It presents the successful strategies and case histories of several key American leaders who have been instrumental in bringing Lean to the forefront of various industries. The second edition, released in October 2012, provides further clarification of the least understood and most critical aspect of a Lean transformation... the building of a Lean culture. In the new introduction, George reviews his efforts to define the key leadership behaviors that have characterized the relatively few, truly successful, lean transformation leaders and his conclusion about the “Big 3” leadership behaviors. Also, George called upon additional Lean leaders experienced in this area to supplement his book. The new stories can be found in appendices B-G on pages 139-234.
The Little Book of Lean
Author Chris Cooper compiles the lessons he learned over a twenty year journey in Lean. From military to charity and from for-profit or non-profit, Chris discovered that the basics of Lean principles apply in every workplace while transforming those involved by what can be achieved. The aims of this book are simple. Chris distills his knowledge to its simple basic essence so that current and future generations of leaders can learn and apply it. Through stories and discussion questions, Chris sets the reader on a path of action that shows a way of looking at the world of human work. And, once the reader can "see" through the Lean lens, it is truly a beautiful sight because of the infinite potential. The Little Book of Lean should be an inspiration for readers to begin to forever improve!
