Lean Management provides improvement techniques for a wide range of problems as well as process flow improvement. These practices can be applied to a wide variety of projects, industries and organizations. With the growing popularity of this discipline comes an abundance of tools, techniques, and general best-practices. Then of course, the question of how to choose the best fit for your needs?
The answer can be found in Working with Lean. This practical book is comprised of forty (40) of the most commonly used Lean Management Techniques. Organized in an easy-to-follow and visual format; you will find it simple to quickly find and choose the Lean tool best suited for your needs. Techniques are arranged according to the DMAIC Improvement Phases: Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control. Each technique listed provides answers to the following common questions:

Successful Lean organizations do not simply apply these techniques singularly to one aspect of the whole. Lean is alive throughout the organization and when integrated, it it becomes Lean Culture.
