Praise for the previous edition: ... captures the opportunities and pitfalls in the journey of lean transformation. ... set in a real-world plant environment that deals with physical, operational, and emotional challenges. The story format engages, teaches, and entertains the reader. -Anne Stevens, Group VP, Canada, Mexico and S. America, Ford Motor Company (Retired) ! one of the best books I've read in a long time on the subject of Lean and the Toyota Production System. Don't be fooled by how simplistic some of the author's solutions appear. If properly taught, and then religiously utilized, they will significantly improve your organization. Pascal Dennis is not only a seasoned 'Sensei' but a good storyteller as well. -Steve Pontbriand, Senior Vice President, Systems Control This short and readable book does a wonderful job of explaining the transformation of a production plant to the Toyota approach to Lean manufacturing. -Brian Maskell, Co-Author, Practical Lean Accounting Highly recommended. ... a quick and light read, although you'll want to stop and let some of the TPS concepts sink in and re-read certain sections and illustrations. -Mark Graban, Phoenix, Arizona --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
