Going Lean sets aside the notion that efficient operations and powerful innovations are only possible when business is steady and demand is growing. Instead, companies must learn that sudden shifts or unpredictable conditions need not undermine their results. Led by a new breed of companies –Toyota, Wal-Mart, and Southwest Airlines—a powerful, yet unexpected mindset is reshaping the rules for business competitiveness. By using Lean Dynamics TM—based on the now-famous Toyota Production System—companies everywhere can thrive in virtually any environment. In Going Lean, readers will learn how to:• become broadly effective in creating and sustaining value• set a critical foundation for achieving sustained excellence• identify sources of lag and create robust value streams that thrive in today’s dynamic conditions• describe the underlying techniques to maintain steady and predictable flow• create a system based on “pull,” or external demand that consistently introduces new innovation even during severe downturns• strive for perfection• deliver industry-leading returns

In Going Lean, author Stephen A. Ruffa introduced the groundbreaking principles of Lean Dynamics, revealing how leading companies go beyond chasing the most visible outcomes of lean to address the disconnects that cause operational waste to accumulate. Illustrated by compelling cases and clear examples, The Going Lean Fieldbook provides a logical structure and practical advice for applying lean principles throughout the organization. Useful as a stand-alone implementation guide and as a training resource, the book maps out a set path toward reaching a series of critical transformation levels, detailing the activities and the hazards that can derail the journey at each point along the way. Readers will learn how to promote stability, consistency, and innovation by first conducting a “dynamic value assessment” and attaining the buy-in that is critical to making business improvements work. Based on lessons of real-life firms from different industries that have successfully implemented lean methods, this is an in-the-trenches manual for anyone who wants to energize their organization.

Once you uncover the barriers to smooth patient flow, you can use the Lean method to develop creative strategies for keeping patients moving. The Lean Method is a management system. It will help you uncover issues, set goals for solving the issues, and measure your progress toward achievement. Lean has worked in real hospitals, real clinics, and real laboratories The book includes numerous examples and success stories that illustrate the Lean Method in action.

An agile process is a journey, not a destination. In Going Lean, Jochen (Joe) Krebs uses his personal weight loss story as a metaphor to illustrate such a journey. Unlike a case study, he introduces agile principles in a practical, real-world approach with a topic everyone can relate to. His story takes us through a proven process pattern, which forces common sense decision-making. As a result, he lost 20kg (44lbs) in only 20 weeks. Going Lean covers the full spectrum of an agile project, from start to finish. It makes connections between a personal story and potentially any projects in small, medium or large enterprises. The story serves as an example for everyone interested in how the principles may map to topics such as financial planning, home renovation or starting-up any type of franchise. Joe wrote a short and entertaining story to encourage more leaders and executives to get started.
