REAL LEAN, Volume Five

Real Lean: Strategies for Lean Management Success (Volume 5) presents a set of strategies that will help assure Lean management success. This small book will be a big help to leaders who want to improve their understanding and practice of Lean management. In a lively and engaging style, Real Lean answers key questions that leaders of organizations have about Lean management. It is a perfect read for busy executives.

This volume encourages executives to study Lean management history, analyze the failures of other companies, obtain a clearer view of reality at ground-level, better utilize internal and external human resources, and have greater confidence in their ability to become self-reliant in their Lean journey. As with prior Volumes of Real Lean, Volume Five emphasizes Lean as a management system and the “Respect for People” principle because both are usually missing from the practice of Lean management today.
