Easy to listen

Easy to listen and rich source of authentic experiences for continuous improvement. The material does not required deep background in Kaizen; rather anyone with moderate knowledge in continuous improvement can benefit from this book.

This is a powerful book!

This book helped me a lot to understand how to measure stuff going on with my startup. The clarity that this book provides based on the stage and type of business you are in is incredibly clear (and even visual) and is unrivaled.

Really Helpful!

I really do like the spirit of kaizen. But the idea of small incremental change could also be small negative change you don’t notice. The book really missed a opportunity on how to cement long term change in my opinion
