Entrepreneur and business writer Paul A. Akers narrates from his hands-on experience as he transforms his business into a “2 Second Lean” (his trademarked term) culture. His short manual bursts with enthusiasm and uses real-life pictures that show the before and after stages of his company’s Lean changes. Akers draws heavily from his leadership experience at FastCap LLC. He avoids manufacturing jargon and complex theory in this chatty, personal, humorous account. getAbstract recommends most of his suggestions to start-ups, business owners, shop floor staff and anyone seeking to optimize their business processes.
In this summary, you will learn
- How a “Lean culture” can transform your business,
- What methods you can use to recognize and eliminate “waste” in every process, and
- What strategies will help you implement “two-second improvements” at work and home.
