Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0971243662, Paperback)

Lean is an all out war against waste of both manufacturing inefficiencies and underutilization of people.

The Power and Magic of Lean is to discover those hidden treasures within your company: to find and eliminate all of the non-value adding wastes and to bring out the infinite creative capacity from every single worker.

In the early 1980’s, I met Mr. Ohno, Dr. Shingo, and other great manufacturing geniuses and published their books in English and brought to the west: Lean, JIT, Kanban, 5S, SMED, TPM, QFD, Hoshin, CEDAC, Kaizen Blitz and other powerful improvement tools and techniques.

Kaikaku is about the discovery of Lean, who I met, how I met them, and the colorful stories about the great manufacturing geniuses of our time.

Read this book in study groups to strengthen your Lean efforts.
