Top Customer Reviews
What I found a little frustrating was the repetition of some of the concepts - not as though for reinforcement alone, but more as though sections were taken from a blog, or articles, and combined to make a book. The majority of the book didn't read this way, but when it did, I found it irritating.
Overall, I have no regrets! I can skim redundant info as easily as the next gal, and there's some good stuff in there.
As an aside, decided to try Audible for the first time with this book... Cool feature! I didn't know if it would work in the car on my iPad (without wireless), but it did! I'll add that on again!
I have read many of this type of book and this one has some of the most easily leveraged information.
My email is not overwhelming any more.
I actually respond to the ones I want to.
My desk is very organized.
There are some top level kaizen and lean management ideas that you can add to your everyday work with ease.
What can I say, I like it and have implemented most of the strategies.
Still, he has many good ideas and practices, so the book was worthwhile.
