Great stuff but questionable for beginners
on May 14, 2011
I love the short and concise essay format. Womack's observations are wise and kind. However, as new to Lean the book is really frustrating. Although it is beginner-like in comprehensively covering Lean concepts with examples, the frequent use of Lean gargon like "do an A3" shows that it is written for the seasoned practioner. The gargon derails me. Note that I read the Kindle version on the train. If I was reading it with Internet access I could google the terms and my experience wouldn't be so bad. My fervent wish is for someone to write a Lean for Dummies (whoops - I see that one already exists). So change my fervent wish to an easily found link on Womack's site Lean.org "DIY Learners Guide to Learning Lean" (i.e. I don't want to pay big bucks to attend his seminars). Thank you.
