Editorial Reviews

Review

"The new insights included in this second edition of Creating a Lean Culture, affirm our examiners recommendations in 2006 to recognize this original work with the Research and Professional Publication Award."
—Robert D. Miller, Executive Director, The Shingo Prize for Operational Excellence

Praise for the First Edition

David Mann has provided an excellent review of one of the most common implementation issues in a lean transformation -- the essential day to day work practices of team leaders/supervisors/value stream managers that enable the lean system.
     -- George Koenigsaecker, President, Lean Investments, LLC

The purpose of lean systems is to make problems glaringly obvious. If implementation does not include standard leadership and cultural support systems to constantly address problems, the point of the system is missed. Many books address lean tools and initial conversion, but if you want the system to stick, read David's book.
     --Robert (Doc) Hall, Editor-In-Chief, Target, Association for Manufacturing Excellence

Mann's book is an excellent start toward Lean Leadership as 'process-dependent' rather than 'person-dependent' in style. The idea of leader standard work is simple and valuable.
     --Ross E. Robson, Executive Director, Shingo Prize for Excellence in Manufacturing

At last! A book that bridges the huge gap between the lofty visionary outcomes of Lean Leadership books - and the practical thinking and tools needed to put competitive outcomes in place. This practitioner approach spells out real work needed. All of us should use Mann's first five chapters to crystallize a 'Lean Management System' with the following five chapters to inspire us to roll up our sleeves.
     --David Hogg, P. Eng., President High Performance Solutions, Inc.

How many times have you found yourself holding repeat kaizen activity for the same problems? Are you losing ground on excellent work that everyone was excited about two months ago, but now that it has become old news, you find people slipping back into their old ways of doing things? This book addresses the issue of Leader Standard Work and how it is the key to sustaining the lean work. This is the book all of your leadership team must read together and discuss.

4 of 6 people found the following review helpful By E. Drum on April 24, 2013
Format: Paperback
Very much overpriced reference. Too many self-centered comments n the text trying to prove the merit of the system. The book seems to be written by an academic without a great deal of true operations management.

Most of the topics are extremely basic, maybe designed for old school manufacturing that lack leadership skills. More management theories and few leadership realities.

The info itself is basic and worthwhile but could be written in a pamphlet for a few dollars instead of a pricey textbook.

I really enjoyed the simplicity of this book as a guideline to the implementation of lean. It beings home the reality that it is not the tools that matter, but how you change the culture that enables the tools that will deliver business results.

the book had some very good ideas and repeated them many times. this book could have been greatly condensed and still have gotten the points across. but i suppose repetition is a great way to learn

A comprehensive volume on engaging management in the Lean journey. Plenty of good examples of Lean tools put use to go nicely with the rest of great ideas found in this book for expanding Lean in your organization. I pulled several ideas to implement immediately and there is more longer term ideas in the hopper for the future. Highly recommended!
