This companion to The Lean Turnaround shows exactly how to use “lean leadership” to eliminate waste while increasing profitability and driving sustainability
The Lean Turnaround Fieldbook provides a ground-level view explaining how to tactically implement the lean strategies presented in The Lean Turnaround by following three core key management strategies: lean is the strategy, lead from the top, and transform the people. Where Lean Turnaround was broad and strategic in its approach, Implementing the Lean Turnaround is granular, practice-based, and full of details on how to implement a lean transformation in your company.
Praise for Art Byrne's The Lean Turnaround:
"With 30 years of accumulated experience, Art Byrne is one of the rare few people who can speak with authority about the pitfalls of financial measurement systems,
the importance of respect for people, the power of Lean in the marketplace, and the leverage from organizing people around value streams. When he writes 'Go to the
Gemba and Run Your Kaizen,' we must take heed."
Masaaki Imai, bestselling author of Kaizen and Gemba Kaizen
"A compelling picture of how Lean techniques and attitudes enable CEOs and senior executives to create a culture for transforming a company and putting it on a high-performance path."
Jerry J. Jasninowski, former President of the National Association of Manufacturers
