Well maybe you or someone you know might be asking “Well what is lean and why should I care?” An excellent question that deserves a great and to-the-point answer. This is why we’re working on an e-book that provides a very basic introduction to lean and how it can help make a difference for you.
The title, naturally, is What is Lean and Why Should I Care?
It will feature quick dives into the 14 lean principles from The Toyota Way, the lean wastes, and an introduction to the lean tools – all without getting too analytical or confusing. The intended audience is someone who has either never heard of lean or is almost completely unfamiliar with it. We’re getting it ready for distribution for next week.
Every subscriber to Lean Blitz via email will receive a copy of What Is Lean and Why Should I Care? to download when it is ready to go.
You’d think that content on becoming more streamlined and a free e-book would be enough to get you to subscribe, right?
