-From the Shingo judges:

This work has an extremely widespread application as the tools, techniques, and methods described are at a level that achieves the goals of Lean and operational excellence without tying them down to a specific industry or work stream. The book provides practical knowledge for  lean champions, managers, and executives driving toward operational excellence enterprise-wide.  The story format, and the presentation of this material was excellent, and the avoidance of lean and operational excellence jargon gives the book a wide appeal…it is a pleasure to read.

Can a venerable but dying company implement Lean practices to every part of their business and learn a new, more effective way of managing?
