I use this book in my lean manufacturing class. It has good practical examples and a useful method for doing lean using the value stream mapping approach. I highly receommend this book for the first timers. I think someone who has no experience could get started using this book.

Format: Paperback
What I found most beneficial in this book were the ready to use forms/worksheets/templates that I used with my lean team immediately. As a supervisor, this gives the structure for implementing lean, just what is needed, when it is needed. Lean design and very, very practical!

Format: Paperback
This book gave me great insight to re-initialized our lean efforts. We have been so busy and got caught up in the value stream mapping craze and kaizen events, but little impact. This book did a superb job in laying out the eight steps, with all the forms, templates necessary to ensure sustainable results. Great work by the authors!

Format: Paperback
This book gave me the realization that a simple process exists from world-class lean companies such as Mercedez-Benz, Wiremold, Pella, Eaton Corporation and Thedford Corporation. These authors did a great job in extracting the successfu lean implementation process into the 8 functional and easy to use steps. Great tools that can be used immediatley. .

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Fredrick Arnstein on October 30, 2008
Format: Paperback
This is a 'lean' book -- it has no fat, no excess words. Yet it's comprehensive enough to guide someone through all the basics of lean. It provides step-by-step instructions, with good examples, and lots of forms. And it is easy, almost pleasant, to read. I bought it because the other reviews were very favorable, and they were right.
