In Powering the Lean Enterprise, author Bill Artzberger introduces basic lean rules and principles in a variety of simulated cases drawn from his personal experiences as a lean coach, trainer and manager.
In each instance, Bill presents a different scenario for implementing lean technologies.
“The goal of lean is to identify and eliminate non-essential and non-value-added steps in the business process in order to streamline operations, improve quality and gain customer loyalty,” states Bill.
“Implementation of lean technologies for a significant number of prestigious Fortune 500 as well as smaller companies has netted larger profit margins, higher quality products and services, improved employee engagement, increased customer satisfaction, and lower operating costs.
The ROI for lean is off the charts.”
Writes Bill: “Lean learning is an ongoing journey toward personal and professional improvement.
At the end of every success is another obstacle waiting to be perceived as yet another learning opportunity.”
