E2 Continuous Improvement System
Managing and sustaining your Lean Transformation through E2 "Everybody, Everyday approach to Lean

By Bruce Hamilton and Pat Wardwell

Copyright GBMP, Inc. Greater Boston Manufacturing Partnership Inc.
Price $49.95 (available at(...) and on at Amazon.com
Pages: 226 Pages including glossary
People talk about Lean Manufacturing all the time, mostly in theory, here is a book, actually a workbook that takes you through the actual step-by-step implementation of Lean Manufacturing including sustaining the benefits of continuous improvement beyond the initial stages of implementation.
Finally a book that makes sense, a book that takes the worker into consideration showing the reader/implementer how to make sure that the workers are signed up by showing them the bigger picture; letting them in on how the company will be and how their life will be post implementation.
The large format spiral bound handbook is broken down into three major sections: Foundation, Management and Countermeasures with each of these sections made up of chapters addressing specific aspects of Lean Manufacturing implementation. The chapters are well constructed and comprehensive enough to be used as a study guide for anyone wanting to work on their own Lean expert in their own company. Each chapter ends with exercises that I found particularly useful putting the ideas of the chapter I had just read to work.
It's important to note that this book was produced and published by GBMP, Inc. (Greater Boston Manufacturing Partnership Inc. which is a non-profit corporation committed to keeping jobs in the US.

There are so many books written on lean and contiuous improvement (I've read over 50 myself) but they usually focus on telling you what to do rather than how to do it and why it's important. This book gets to heart of the matter with the authers writing the same way they speak, in easy to understand language. Throughout the book the theme of e²=Everybody,Everyday is reinforced as one of the key concepts to creating a continuous improvement culture and I only wish this book was around years ago when my company began its Lean journey. If there is one tool to add to your arsenal this quarter, this is it.
