Eaton, a former engineer who is associated with a consultancy that helps organizations prepare for, implement, and sustain improvement using strategic planning, Lean/Sigma, and change management approaches, offers a reference guide for those wanting to introduce Lean in private or public sector organizations or expand their existing Lean program. Chapters follow the main steps undertaken in a single Lean event; a Lean project focused on one area, process, or pathway; or a Lean program that spans entire organizations and involves separate activities. They explain planning, key Lean concepts, scoping projects, value stream mapping events, 2P/3P events, rapid improvement events, managing for daily improvement, leader standard work, strategic planning, engaging the team, ensuring success, communications and celebrations, and key tools and concepts.
