Eight books - Lean: Ultimate Collection!

It's the method and mentality of how you run your business and shape your culture. The examples are great, and the you should get the point that just because Toyota did it this way, doesn't make it a cut and paste fit for other businesses. Take that away and it should be good

Use it frequently at work

I work Lean projects every week at work and I refer to this book often. Well worth its price, especially as an intro to the basics and a quick desk reference.

Excellent book.

Excellent book. Establishes a base line for developing a start-up using the combination of analytics, lean principles and Steve Blanks original work. Ash shows a real passion for his subject and a worthwhile read for anyone in from new to small to medium enterprise.

It provides a fabulous summary

The book is a bit of a metric cookbook instead of a book explaining why a metric is really important. The business manager really need to understand the drivers of their business and stay informed of how their company is managing the drivers -- this is what separates successful companies from the rest.

This book offers a discovery process for ideas

This book offers a discovery process for ideas, testing those ideas to see which are commercially viable, and then build and grow a business with those ideas - all using the lower risk and lower cost of LEAN processes. 'Lean Analytics' covers the vast subject of founding a business and does it better than any book I've listen.

Outstanding book

Throughout the book, you'll find key takeaways clearly highlighted and embedded within the relevant text. Lean Analytics packs a powerful punch of information. These key takeaways keep readers focused and on-track so that the information is highly relevant and immediately useful rather than overwhelming.

Exactly as described

The book is full of good data, reports, and case studies. The principles you will be applying are not pie-in-the-sky but practical and tested by numerous organizations.

Hard to listen to

The book has a ton of very short not in-depth chapters. Over 70 5 to 8 minute chapters

Terrible narration

I was only able to listen to about 10 minutes of this audiobook. Very disappointing. I think the content would have been good. I also skipped the 14 minute reading of the table of contents. It almost sounded like text to voice conversion rather than a human being reading the book. Very hard to listen to especially for this content.

Summaries without substance

Every book it summarizes makes you feel that you would have been better off reading the books it's pulling information from. They summarize as if they are reading an outline without knowing what the words mean.

Not a fan. It was very hard for me to finish.

I found the narrator very hard to listen too. This is the first book I ever wanted a refund on.

Great information, poor narration

The book gives a good overview of Lean. However it is a struggle to listen to it due to the robotic and forced cheerful narration.

Bad order, terms mispronounced, copycat data

After a lengthy Dubliner how you can't take excerpts of the book or summarize it, the author summarizes and takes excerpts from Jeffrey Ries' books on the same topics but gets his name wrong (He calls him Eric). Terms are mispronounced and the chapters/books are not in a logical order at all. About this book. Get Jeffrey Ries' books instead!

Intelligent.

Very thorough and includes many statistical tools. The tools are of moderate depth. This book was useful as a companion to start my first sigma project. It gave me the lingo and the context for my project. I also know I need to focus on using control charts with the help of minitab to proceed further. A good introduction
