The most powerful Lean Book you will ever own! View a video book summary at wcmfg.com/Book_info.htm For years, Industry Week magazine has reported that roughly 75% of companies using Lean as their business improvement activity have reported little, if any, progress. Since Lean can solve any business problem, why are 75% of organizations using Lean showing such little progress, when properly implemented Lean activities can show significant progress in the first year? The answer is that business organizations are not closing the loop between their business strategies, plans, budgets, and Lean as the system to make the plans a reality. Our new step-by-step workbook will show you how to close the loop between your business plans and your lean activities. In our book, we discuss and walk through the following 10 Steps to Policy Deployment using Lean as a System: 1. Establish a Mission and Guiding Principles 2. Develop Business Goals 3. Brainstorm Opportunities to Achieve Goals 4. Define parameters to value opportunities 5. Establish Weighting Requirements, Rate Opportunities, & Prioritize 6. Conduct a Reality Check 7. Develop Lean Implementation Plan 8. Develop Bowling Chart 9. Countermeasures 10. Conducting Business Reviews. Our easy to follow workbook also contains sample spreadsheets on CD that will allow you to customize our 10 Step process to your unique organization. This groundbreaking new book is the key to using Lean as a system and will ensure that you are using Lean to its maximum potential.

This is the first book I have ever seen that provides senior management with a roadmap. The 10 Step process is excellent and easy to follow.
