Resume: The bestselling business classic by two internationally renowned management analysts describes a business system for the twenty-first century, which is based on the Toyota (lean) model. It combines operational excellence with value-based strategies to produce steady growth through a wide range of economic conditions.
What lean thinkers do is go back to basics by asking what the customer really perceives as value, they line up value-creating activities while eliminating activities that don’t add value.
Lean Thinking clearly demonstrates that these simple ideas can breathe new life into any company, in any industry, in any country.
Lean Thinking does not provide a new management “program” for the one-minute manager. Instead, it offers a new method of thinking, of being, and, above all, of doing for the serious long-term manager — a method that is changing the world.
