First published in 2006, this book is co-authored by S A Partners Head of Lean Academy, Dr. Donna Samuel. The book addresses Lean through the vehicle of a research programme, with which the authors were involved, called Learn 2. This collaborative research programme involved several organisations from a diverse range of industry sectors.
The research methodology enabled the researchers to deeply explore the ‘messy’ issue of Lean implementation. The demands of academic rigour often tend to discourage academics from addressing implementation. However, the Learn 2 research team were bold enough to take on the challenge. The book is a summary of the lessons and insights that they learned along the way. The book is targeted at improvement managers but will also be of interest to business students and researchers in lean thinking. The paperback edition makes the book more affordable that the hardback edition that until was the only one available. Why not view more details about this paperback by viewing it our book list.
