    A complete game changer. This book is a deeper dive of “The Toyota Way.” The concepts are taken down another level into more detail. Standardize processes, innovate which results in new standards. Surface problems that force solving. A manufacturing necessity. Even if you don’t agree with the entire concept, there’s too much other benefits to skip this book.

    One of the best book I read in a long time. This is a good read for anyone interested in quality work and making sure the right processes are in place to achieve them. If you want to be a better leader this is a good book to read, I say a must read for leaders to make it better for the organization or the team.

    An adorable stuff for Industrial Engineering students. This book tell a lot of approach that focuses on continuous improvement in manufacturing sector by optimizing value added activity, reduce waste and build organisational culture (Toyota 4S).

    Very nice read after reading the Toyota Way. Some chapters towards the end are unnecessarily large and do not provide such useful information like the previous ones, hence 4 stars :)

    Fantastic follow up to The Toyota Way. Adds a much deeper depth and expertise. It requires hard thought but definitely worth the read.

    This book is a must read if you are running a manufacturing operation. After failing by being too focused on tools and process, I found the book to offer tremendous insight on how to build a lean organization (the Toyota Way) from someone who has a tremendous amount of experience (we should all learn from it).

After failing by being too focused on tools and process, I found the book to offer tremendous insight on how to build a lean organization (the Toyota Way) from someone who has a tremendous amount of experience (we should all learn from it). From a process perspective, the high level value stream mapping step at the very beginning of the process is critical. This step highlights how much waste exists and provides the roadmap or game plan for the entire process. The advice to highlight pacesetters in the VSM keeps you on track for what capacity is even possible (the old bottleneck). Other gold nuggets (there are many more): To even start, you must have a stable process (think attendance and down time - fix these first) Put a definitive timeline on being complete on 5S 1 piece flow will create disruption and reveal waste (must be ready) Flow must be connected from beginning of the process to the end Team leaders must be experts in standard work You must schedule JI trainers to have time to train "Stop to Fix" is a major change - have a plan Technology - automate proven processes (don't automate to save money) The most important advice is to have a change management plan (take a look at Kotter's Leading Change in conjunction with this book). The key to success of the lean transformation is growing team and group leaders who are unconsciously competent in lean (they just do it - every day). You also have to get your leaders out of the day to day (standard leader work is a must). It is not often that you get a step by step guide from an expert on such a valuable topic. Take the time to read and implement it (and be patient).

    You would have to be pretty dedicated to learning about lean stuff in order to really want to read this book. I read it because it was on my company's recommended reading list, but MAN! it was sooo hard to get through. And I STILL don't know how I would apply this book to my work, as much as I would like to. I guess I would have to be more on the production side of things to really see the benefits of lean. (Which may be the case in the future if I am ever a project manager, I guess?)

At any rate, I think this kind of went hand-in-hand with the Steve Jobs book that I finished recently. It really offers the argument of taking a minimalistic approach to providing efficiency and stresses the importance of finding where waste is generated. With all that said, I think I am taking a LOOONG break from any business books.

    Got an interest in Lean Manufacturing and Continuous Improvement principles? This is the right book for you. Consist of some stories and methods of Toyota Production System (which have been adopted by most manufacturing companies worldwide), the book will give you some insights how to perform better in manufacturing business as well as how to develop continuous improvement culture. The Toyota Way has good information to share, and indeed a good book to read.

    The holy grail for the auto industry. It's a filtered version of integrated work solutions (IWS) and seven step focused improvements in manufacturing (FI). The holy grail for the auto industry.

    I'd recommend reading the first and original book, Toyota Way first, but I thought this is probably the best book of them all. I don't want to explain in detail about this book - buy it. Read.
