About this title


The missing link to long-term Lean success! Despite the fact that companies worldwide have adopted Lean production, none has sustained the same levels of excellence as Toyota. Why? Leadership. In The Toyota Way to Lean Leadership, Jeffrey Liker and Gary L. Convis, a former executive V.P. and managing officer of Toyota, help executives and senior managers get employees to refocus their efforts--from simply performing their singular function to continuously improving in collaboration across the organization. Case studies from Toyota clearly illustrate the methods that create powerful, effective Lean leadership. Jeffrey Liker, author of the popular Toyota Way books, is the acknowledged expert on Toyota processes. He is professor of Industrial and Operations Engineering at the University of Michigan. After his executive leadership at Toyota, Gary L. Convis became the CEO of Dana Holding Corporation, a $6.1 billion supplier to the global automotive, commercial vehicle, and off-highway markets, and helped lead it to a successful turnaround from bankruptcy.

From the Back Cover:

"The Toyota Way to Lean Leadership will immediately be recognized as the most important book ever published to understand and guide "True North Lean" and the goal of perpetual business excellence.  The book clearly describes altruistic leaders, concerned with the interest of others, and process vs. individual focused leadership as required ingredient's of Lean." 

Ross Robson, President & CEO, DnR Lean & Ex. Director, Shingo Prize (retired)

This book is an absolute must read for anyone interested in lean: it's both an eye opener and a game changer. It will transform how you think about lean, and open the way to spectacular results in your job."

Michael Ballé, PhD, co-author of The Gold Mine and The Lean Manager
