Creating the Lean Culture Jun 20, 2008
This book is great in describing management systems that result in continuous improvement in your organization. "Companies that believe human capital is worth the investment, and demonstrate that, are most often the more successful companies. People skills are frequently the difference between success and mediocrity or even failure." 240 The author writes about company culture having shared goals, predicable processes, open lines of communication, and accountability in management systems. This book helps establish this culture towards continuous improvement.
