Lean is the most widespread management philosophy of our time and is currently present in every industry. Yet, the concept is still vaguely defined and widely misunderstood. What is ‘Lean’? is an interactive training program that will equip participants with a solid understanding of both what lean is and what lean is not.
The program includes a deep dive into each of the critical components of lean. Participants will dissect terms such as ‘the efficiency paradox,’ which refers to the state of an organization when it places too much focus on resource efficiency. In doing so, ill-guided teams will find themselves busier but are, paradoxically, less efficient. What is ‘Lean’? will provide you with the tools to identify, address and resolve such common mistakes.

Published in 2011, This is Lean has been translated into 18 languages and sold to over 300,000 readers, making it one of the most widely spread books about lean. For this reason, there is no better source to provide a deeper understanding of the use of lean to achieve excellence within your organization.
