Description:

h3 2006 SHINGO PRIZE for EXCELLENCE in MANUFACTURING RESEARCH /h3 p Lean production has been proven unbeatable in organizing production operations, yet the majority of attempts to implement lean end in disappointing results. The critical factor so often overlooked is that lean implementation requires day-to-day, hour-by-hour management practices and skills that leaders in conventional batch-and-queue environments are neither familiar nor comfortable with. /p p b i Creating a Lean Culture /i /b helps lean leaders succeed in their personal batch-to-lean transformation. It provides a practical guide to implementing the missing links needed to sustain a lean implementation. Mann provides critical guidance on developing and using the key elements of a lean management system, including: leader standard work, visual controls, daily accountability processes, maintaining a process focus, managing key HR issues, and much more. In addition, a questionnaire is included to help assess current management practices and monitor progress. /p h4 Highlights: /h4 UL LI Distinguishes the much-discussed, abstract concept of "lean culture" from the concrete, implementable practices of lean management. /LI LI Describes and illustrates 4 key principles of lean management: leader standard work; visual controls; daily accountability process, and discipline. /LI LI Shows how visual controls bring process focus to life, tie in lean's requirement for highly disciplined execution, and make leaders' new jobs far easier to explain, model and evaluate. /LI LI Moves beyond models and theories of lean management to show how to implement the daily practices that are the key to implementing and sustaining a leantransformation. Lots of case examples, figures and photographs. /LI /UL
