Provides Reassurance and Suggestions From Those Who Have Walked the Same Lean Road

Perhaps the most fundamental challenge that companies adopting a lean strategy must face is how to sustain initial momentum and develop a corporate culture with an ongoing commitment to that strategy. While efficient tools and strategies are essential to the cause, just as critical is a shared confidence that this endeavor is the right course. While one has to make the road by walking it, knowing that others have walked a similar path can both be instructive and encouraging.

Make Rapid Changes and Enjoy Long-Term Success

Sustaining Lean:Case Studies in Transforming Culture,the third compilation of articles originally published in AME's well-regarded Target Magazine, provides accounts of challenges encountered and methods applied by organizations in pursuit of lean. While a few of the articles broadly discuss issues involved in long-term transformation, the vast majority provide illuminating and often inspirational case studies.

Following an insightful introduction by noted lean expert David Mann, this compelling volume tells the stories of companies that overcame significant cultural challenges. It helps any manager understand what it takes to communicate a vision of improvement and achieve the empowerment of stakeholders vital to rapid change and long-term success.
