About the Author:

JOHN A. A. EARLEY is a Founding Partner of SmartChain International LLP (www.smartchainllp.com) who provide consulting support to large companies to transform their supply chains. He has a long international career as both a consultant and in industry where he held a number of senior leadership roles, enabling him to see things from both sides. Lean has been at the forefront of John's thinking from his early days at Rolls Royce Aero Engines through a successful career at PriceWaterhouseCoopers to his role of Global Head of Lean at AstraZeneca PLC.

John has learned what works and what doesn't through over 30 years of practical experience in all walks of business and life. As a result, he is a pragmatist who strongly believes that a simple common sense solution, done well by people who understand it, will always deliver better results than a complex one which may be better in theory, but is more difficult to implement.
