It has been almost a decade since I first read "the Red Book". It is as practical now as it was then maybe even more so!So many of the new lean books on the market focus on the "why" of lean or the next generation of improvement. It was inspiring to go back and read a "how" book.

Another excellent resource on ways to document and create continuous flow through a system. It is very focussed on manufacturing systems making physical products, but the lessons can also be applied to software development. It helped me realise that manufacturing is more complex & so software should be easier.

I could have used this book as I was starting out in my own Lean/CI education/journey. This boils down to a very practical and readable guide into how to successfully run/lead a kaizen event. All the aspects are there - planning/preparation, bringing together and leading a team, and using a bias for action to get whatever is planned done. Definitely something I will refer people to as I continue my career.

Great and inspiring book. It is very practical not only for production managers, but for trading and service companies as well.Great and inspiring book. It is very practical not only for production managers, but for trading and service companies as well.

Good basics of process improvement via line balancing
