During a recent Tea Time with The Toast Dude webinar, I shared a few of my favorite books. These are the books that I recommend to students of Lean to ground their Lean learning…to understand the philosophies, what is sometimes called “the Know Why” right alongside “the Know How.” Too often the countermeasures and tools are attempted without a conceptual understanding or holistic context. These texts provide both, how and why, an integration of the tools and culture required for a successful Lean Transformation.
I hope you find the list useful and discover a few of your future favorite books. Happy Holidays!
