- Concrete Examples
Jeffrey Liker and David Meier first explored lean methodology in The Toyota Way (2003). This companion book goes further, providing the wisdom, practical tools and examples you need to smooth your organization’s transition to lean operations. Toyota’s success as one of the world’s most profitable automakers springs from decades of building partners and networks, a continuous drive to improve and a long-term philosophy that benefits society at large. This Fieldbook may intimidate readers with its flowcharts and checklists, but true lean transformation resides in the details. Process is important and so are the people who live and breathe it.
