Instead of a recession in , the most ebullient economy of the entire twentieth century charged ahead for five more years, into , extending a remarkable era in which practically anyone could succeed in business.
Given that the book was published years before our ideas were most needed, it's surprising how many readers took the advice in Lean Thinking seriously during the best of times. We have heard from readers across the world about their successes in applying its principles. Once reality caught up with our forecast, and the recession of gave way to the financial meltdown of , reader interest surged.
Indeed, Lean Thinking reappeared on the Business Week business-books bestseller list in —nearly five years after its launch and with no publicity campaign—an unprecedented event, according to our publishers. Given clear evidence that readers are now finding Lean Thinking even more relevant in their business lives than when it was first published, we have decided to expand and reissue the book.
In Part I we explain some simple, actionable principles for creating lasting value in any business during any business conditions. In Part III, we show how a relentless focus on the value stream for every product—from concept to launch and order to delivery, and from the upstream headwaters of the supply base all the way downstream into the arms of the customer—can create a true lean enterprise that optimizes the value created for the customer while minimizing time, cost, and errors.
In the two new chapters of Part IVJ we bring the story of the continuing advance of lean thinking up-to-date. We track the trend in inventory turns—the lean metric that cannot lie—across all industries, singling out one industry for special praise. We also track the progress of our profiled companies. We discover that as economies have gyrated, stock markets have crashed, and the poster companies of the s hailed in other business books have flown a ballistic trajectory, our lean exemplars—led by Toyota—have defied the fate of most firms featured in successful business books.
They have continued their methodical march from success to success and have done it the hard way by creating real and truly sustainable value for their customers, their employees, and their owners. Finally, in the concluding chapter, we share what we have ourselves learned since about lean thinking and its successful application by describing a range of new implementation tools. These begin with the concept of value stream mapping, which we have found to be a remarkable way to raise consciousness about value and its components, leading to action.
In revising the book we have corrected a few minor errors and omissions in the original text.
However, we have been careful not to change the pagination. We know that many organizations use Lean Thinking as a text to guide their change process, distributing copies widely and often including their distributors and suppliers. Thus we wanted to ensure that there will be no difficulty in interchanging the two editions. Today, nearly seven years after its publication, we are even more certain that lean thinking, as explained in Lean Thinking, is the single most powerful tool available for creating value while eliminating waste in any organization.
We hope that previous readers will use this new edition as an opportunity to renew their commitment to lean principles. And we especially hope that many new readers will discover a whole new world of opportunity. Lean Thinking versus Muda 1. Value 2. The Value Stream 3. Flow 4. Pull 5. A Channel for the Stream; a Valley for the Channel The Lean Network Appendix: Our objective was to send a wake-up message to organizations, managers, employees, and investors stuck in the old-fashioned world of mass production.
Machine presented a wealth of benchmarking data to show that there is a better way to organize and manage customer relations, the supply chain, product development, and production operations, an approach pioneered by the Toyota company after World War II. We labeled this new way lean production because it does more and more with less and less. As we started our travels across North America, then to Japan where many mass producers still reside and Korea, and on through Europe, we were greatly concerned that no one would listen.
Perhaps the slumber of mass production was too deep to disturb?
More than , copies have been sold so far in eleven languages not counting the pirated Chinese translation. Their question was seemingly a simple one: How do we do it? In posing this question, they were not asking about specific techniques— how to organize teams, how to use Quality Function Deployment in product development, or how to poka-yoke mistake-proof production processes.
