Full Description


While Lean Thinking is an established approach to developing a culture of continuous improvement, the process of implementing Lean in any organization can be complicated, with programs often ending in failure. The Lean Practitioner's Handbook bridges the gap between the tools and the concepts of Lean and offers a practical, easily accessible resource for anyone preparing for, implementing or evaluating Lean activities. Eaton discusses key areas, such as: aspects of a Lean Program; scoping a program; value stream mapping; 2P and 3P events; rapid improvement events; managing for daily improvement; engaging the team; spotting problems and communicating progress. For Eaton, Lean needs to be part of the organization's culture. Discussing Lean as it applies to organizational change and strategic planning, this book covers a wide variety of tools and concepts and explains how to apply them in practice.
