About this item

Kliem defines Lean as a revolutionary way of changing how a private or public organization does business, whether at the strategic or operational levels. Reworking priorities, it places the customer in the forefront, changing how people interact as much as how materials are acquired, processed, and delivered. He cites the significant role project management plays as a means to obtain ownership and commitment among everyone at all levels of an organization and to open everyone’s vision and perceptions regarding why an organization exists in the first place. The book aims to help project professionals apply and leverage the power of their field to help them lead not just manage their Lean projects to success and to the benefit of their organization and the people who work in it. Ultimately, a Lean project should demonstrate improvements in efficiency and effectiveness, and project management is the best way to achieve such results. Eight chapters are: the long road to lean; what is lean?; overview of project management fundamentals; fundamental lean concepts, tools, and techniques; lean and project management processes; lean project management using the PDCA cycle; project management for a lean project using DMAIC; ten final thoughts about lean.
