I have fortunately, because the author of this book has also authored that book and makes many references to it. If you haven't, i think it detracts some from the content in this book. The biggest thing i have taken from the book when I started this review part way through was going to the jemba. Which if you have read any lean material that is one of the biggest items they reference is going out to the floor (jemba) or whatever it is that is being made to "see" the problem first hand. There is also a lot of references to A3 reports which are called that due to their size. They mention starting at the top and working your way down through the levels to adopt lean. Starting at the bottom and going up isn’t good. The rationale is because if you have huddles with your team and the leader isn’t able to ask appropriate questions to spur improvement. Which instead of improvement would sound more like here is your target now go make the target. Lean is a 5-10 year effort to adopt and a continuous process after that. They also talk about a process for lean adoption: *Educate yourself *Coach your team *Continual improvement forever The last thing I wanted to mention is this book does do a very good job of explaining lean terminology. So if your wanted to understand lean terminology with examples for those terms then this book will do that well.

    Great book for leaders, or people who wanted to be. “management has no more critical role than motivating and engaging large numbers of people to work together toward a common goal; defining and explaining what the goal is; sharing a path to achieve it; motivating people to take the journey with you; and assisting them by removing obstacles.

    A pleasant read. It went through the basics of lean leadership and brought up some really crucial points that have been referred to in other lean books, but only fully expanded here.

    This is a well-written book about developing Lean Leadership. It has won awards, so I'll only point out the faults that I saw. First, the opening chapter talks so much about Toyota, I almost stopped reading. I felt that at some point, I was going to be asked to drink kool-aid. Second, I am turned off of the subject of Lean by the Japanese terminology. These concepts largely originated from W. Edwards Deming so I don't need to learn Japanese terms to describe what was originally an American conce This is a well-written book about developing Lean Leadership.

He nearly contradicts himself from earlier chapters when saying the starting point is the tools. Having said that, the book is well-written, thought-provoking, motivating, and it strikes a good balance between theory and practice. I would highly recommend it for those considering a Lean journey.

    How to coach lean leaders I've read a few books on lean, and I do have lean six sigma green belt. Some of the books I have read are interesting but they kind of follow introducing the same kind of tools used in similar fashion. This book only focuses on the leadership, and in a quite an interesting way. The main giving of this book is on how to connect strategy and continuous improvement to people developing.

    A true 5* book. Listening to this on Audible reaffirmed the reason I started studying and practicing lean. I have added to my list of books that I need to purchase a hardbound copy for my library.
