Publisher's Summary

The core idea is to maximize customer value while minimizing waste. Simply, lean means creating more value for customers with fewer resources. A lean organization understands customer value and focuses its key processes to continuously increase it. The ultimate goal is to provide perfect value to the customer through a perfect value creation process that has zero waste.

To accomplish this, lean thinking changes the focus of management from optimizing separate technologies, assets, and vertical departments to optimizing the flow of products and services through entire value streams that flow horizontally across technologies, assets, and departments to customers.

This book discusses how big companies can eliminate waste along entire value streams, instead of at isolated points, creates process that need less human effort, less space, less capital, and less time to make products and services at far fewer costs and with much fewer defects, compared with traditional business systems.

  • Lean as a company resource
  • Lean manufacturing
  • Benefits of lean
  • Lean in the IT sector
  • Simplify lean with focus
  • How lean training inspires efficiency

    "Worth purchasing!"

    Worth reading. This book gives clearly maps out a strategy for validating problem market fit within large organisations. It certainly aligns with my own experiences to date.. It clarifies many things you usually think are obvious when selling new solutions to other businesses.

    "Motivational book"

    I like the book, everyone raves about it for good reason.

    I found the narrator really annoying but pushed through it - very useful and highly recommended.

    Really liked this book, gave me ideas and inspiration for my work.
    Especially liked the Improvement Kata approach on enterprise/program level. Miss this part in the frameworks for scaling agile. "Implementing an enterprise-level continuous improvement process is a prerequisite for any large-scale transformation effort

    "surpriced "


    The book was surprisingly well balanced overwhelming. I am an advocate of visuals especially when they add value by simplifying, explaining, and drawing the eyes attention... but maybe it was a tad more distracting that it should've been, there are instances where I didn't see the value of illustrations, but the flow and substance were commendable
