THE C-LEVEL GUIDE TO SUCCEEDING WITH LEAN "With 30 years of accumulated experience, Art Byrne is one of the rare few people who can speak with authority about the pitfalls of fi nancial measurement systems, the importance of respect for people, the power of Lean in the marketplace, and the leverage from organizing people around value streams. When he writes 'Go to the Gemba and Run Your Kaizen,' we must take heed." -- MASAAKI IMAI, bestselling author of Kaizen and Gemba Kaizen "In this wonderful and important book, Byrne shows us that Lean management, understood and practiced correctly, consistently delivers spectacular results." -- BOB EMILIANI, author, Better Thinking, Better Results, and Professor, Connecticut State University "A compelling picture of how Lean techniques and attitudes enable CEOs and senior executives to create a culture for transforming a company and putting it on a highperformance path." -- JERRY J. JASINOWSKI, former President of the National Association of Manufacturers "Art Byrne provides real-world examples of how he exhibited the wisdom and courage to do the right thing, improving work practices at all levels of the organization to deliver the right results for all stakeholders. Which comes first, the wisdom or the courage? Read The Lean Turnaround to find out." -- JOHN SHOOK, Chairman and CEO, Lean Enterprise Institute "Lean is the closest thing to magic I have experienced in my 40 years in business. I recommend Lean and this book to everyone responsible for the performance of a business, particularly those in private equity like me, where leverage magnifies the importance of cash." -- JOHN CHILDS, founder and CEO, of J. W. Childs Associates L.P. "A must-read for any leader interested in understanding the strategic advantages from focusing on activities that add value to the customer experience." -- GARY S. KAPLAN, MD, Chairman and CEO of the Virginia Mason Health System Lean isn't just for manufacturing anymore . . . Few business leaders in the world have applied Lean strategy as successfully as Art Byrne has--and none has the ability to explain how to do it with such succinctness and clarity. Famous for turning around the wire management company Wiremold, where he rethought every aspect of operations from the customer's standpoint--and got everyone else in the company to do likewise--Byrne has successfully implemented Lean strategies in more than 30 companies in 14 different countries. In The Lean Turnaround, this legendary business leader shares everything he has learned during his remarkable career and shows how anyone can achieve similar results. His primary message is this: Lean strategy isn't just for manufacturing. In fact, Byrne is using this very approach in his present position at a private equity firm. Whatever type of company you run, Lean can be used to improve virtually every aspect of operations, from training and leading employees to accounting and payroll issues. The Lean Turnaround explains all the ins and outs of applying Lean strategy to: Eliminate waste in every value-added operation Deliver consistent value to customers Stimulate growth and add jobs Increase wealth for all your stakeholders Build a company culture of continuous improvement (kaizen) Instead of attempting to get customers to conform to your way of doing things--which is, sadly, what most managers are taught to do--you need to configure your company to be responsive to the customers. This is at the core of Byrne's method--and it always works.

Lean Behavioral Health: The Kings County Hospital Story is the first lean book that focuses entirely on behavioral health. Using the principles of the Toyota Production System, or lean, the contributors in this groundbreaking volume share their experience in transforming a major safety net public hospital after a tragic and internationally publicized event. As the largest municipal hospital system in the United States, the New York City Health & Hospitals Corporation adopted lean as the transformational approach for all of its hospitals and clinics. Kings County Hospital Center, one of the largest providers of behavioral health care in the country, continues on its transformational journey utilizing lean's techniques. While not every event was fully successful, most were and every event, including failures, increased the knowledge base about how to continually improve quality and safety. Having made major changes, Kings County Hospital Center is now recognized as a center for transformation and quality receiving high marks from oversight agencies. This volume begins by describing the basic principles of the lean approach-adding value, eliminating waste, and tapping the organization's line staff to create and sustain dramatic change. An overview of the use of lean from a quality improvement perspective follows. Lean tools are applied to many services that comprise the behavioral health value stream and these stories are highlighted. The experts in identifying waste and adding value are the line staff whose voices are captured in the clinical chapters. Insights learned by event participants are emphasized as teaching points to provide context for what has worked or has not worked at Kings County Hospital Center. While the burning platform at Kings County Hospital Center was white hot and while the Department of Justice scrutinized its quality of patient care, the application of lean methods and tools has transformed the hospital into a potential model for behavioral health programs facing the challenges of the present healthcare environment. It is a must-have story for clinicians, administrators and other leaders in the mental health field devoted to improving quality and safety at their hospitals and clinics.

This book by Peter Béndek presents a strong case against the current practice of business operations improvement, based on numerous studies from the business world as well as insights from the most prestigious authors of the last fifty years. The author contests the applicability and indeed the relevance of the Toyota Production System and its spin-offs to the Western context, claiming that a revised approach is much better suited to taking our specific cultural conditions into account, while also combining increased transparency, speed, and sustainability of change with a robust value-creating capability. Dr. Béndek argues that this approach can have a far-reaching impact on corporate cultures by offering an all-encompassing learning system, one that provides a more coherent and actionable continuous improvement strategy than conventional approaches. The book offers an important guide to rethinking operations management, both in academia and business practice.

Based on quantitative analysis of 100 cases of Lean transformations and 20 in-depth case studies of successfully transformed SMEs, it explains how to undertake lean transformations that lead to operational and financial performance improvement, and uses the Lean Transformation Framework --conceptualized by John Shook at the Lean Enterprise Institute—as a practical approach to design and de-risk the transformation process.

2016 Gewinner des SHINGO Forschung und berufliche VERÖFFENTLICHUNG AWARD, Entwicklung von Lean Führungskräfte auf allen Ebenen: A Practical Guide ist ein Management-Must Read.Die Lean Leadership Development Model (LLDM) in diesem Buch ist intuitiv, und deckt sich gut mit den anerkannten Grundsätzen der operativen Exzellenz. Es dehnt sich deutlich auf die Elemente der Lean, strukturieren sie in einer bestimmten Weise, die durch schlanke Praktiker operationalisiert werden kann.Sie können alles, was Sie über den Toyota-Weg wollen zu lernen; können Sie die Werkzeuge, die sie erstellt haben, zu implementieren, aber wenn Sie nicht über die in Ihrer Kultur etabliert Verhaltensweisen, wird es nicht erfolgreich für die langfristige Erhaltung der operativen Exzellenz sein. Führung muss die Rede von der geografischen Nordrichtung in jedem Aspekt des Lean Leadership Development Model (LLDM) zu Fuß, wie ausführlich von Dr. Liker in diesem letzten Shingo-Preis übermittelt Gewinnen buchen.Das Erfolgsgeheimnis von Toyota hinsichtlich der Entwicklung von Führungskräften haben Jeffrey Liker und Toyota-Veteran Gary Convis zum ersten Mal in ihrem Buch The Toyota Way to Lean Leadership gelüftet. Toyota-Führungskräfte leben die Unternehmenswerte, verbessern das Unternehmen kontinuierlich und können sich auf ein schnell veränderndes Umfeld einstellen.Für Toyota-Führungskräfte wird ein Kern-Set von Fähigkeiten vorausgesetzt. Dies zielt darauf ab, den richtigen Weg zu finden, um Wertschaffung für die Kunden zu verbessern - unabhängig für welchen Unternehmensbereich (Verkauf, Logistik, Personal, Fertigung, Forschung & Entwicklung, Finanzen). Dieser Prozess wird oftmals mit den Ergebnissen des Prozesses verwechselt, welche als Werkzeuge bei einer Toyota-Werksbesichtigung anschaulich werden. Das Phänomen eines jeden Toyota-Werkes ist, dass eine Kultur von Menschen geschaffen wird, die wohl durchdacht eine Methode des Definierens, der Analyse sowie der Problemlösung erlernt haben, um das Unternehmen weiter nach vorne zu bringen.
