5 to 10 minutes of 5s max - then bits about lean

Would you try another book written by Ade Asefeso MCIPS MBA or narrated by Samuel Fleming?

No, I bought two by Ade Asefeso at the same time, this one had little to do with the 5S title, the other was like a glossary of terms not a book.

Has 5S Lean Manufacturing put you off other books in this genre?

i dont know, may be would need to check them out first

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Samuel Fleming?

was not so much the narrator but the content

What character would you cut from 5S Lean Manufacturing?

N/A

Any additional comments?

if your looking for info in 5S this is not the book for you, little to no useful content, only 5 to 10 minutes worth in the whole book

5S?

A brief overview.

The 5S comes from Japan in which the words all start with the letter S. With a bit of effort they also start with the letter S in English.

Enough of the that; lean manufacturing; eliminate waste; workers fear change; convince them to change; lay them off when they are no longer needed as a result of their and their co-workers willingness to accept change. Having problems hire us to consult. Buy LED boards as they automatically lead to desirous outcome when the correct numbers are posted on them. Eliminate waste; lean manufacturing; six sigma can help to. If you are not going to hire us, at least hire someone. In conclusion we can help you understand the vague techniques in this book as well as convince your employees to trust you, so you can betray them. Here is our web address; hire us.

The book does actually have some decent information, but it tends to be pretty vague and is mostly about selling consultancy, in my opinion.

This is a commercial not a book

Would you try another book from Ade Asefeso MCIPS MBA and/or Samuel Fleming?

Absolutely not.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from 5S Lean Manufacturing?

Every single internet address read out loud.

Any additional comments?

This was the most horrible listen I've had during my years with audible. This book is a lengthy commercial and you can learn more about 5S and Lean by using the same amount of time to Google either of them. Also it was horrible that the narrator didn't even try the correct pronounciation of the Japaneze words associated with either.

Too Repetitive, Good Substance, Average Speaker

The book wasn't bad in regards to the overall content, however the delivery and voice of the speaker was not that good, and the content repeated in every chapter. I wouldn't really suggest this book.

It was a long, repetitive commercial for lean

Would you try another book from Ade Asefeso MCIPS MBA and/or Samuel Fleming?

no

It provided no actual information. It kept promising to, but then just kept repeating the same sales pitch over and over again. This was the first time I've ever written a negative review.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Samuel Fleming?

Indifferent
