"Learning to See" is a very straightforward and practical guide to Value Stream Mapping. It is the original book on the topic and I haven't seen a better one.It guides you through the process in a very simple and clear manner. It is pretty much essential reading if you are involved in implementing lean in the workplace - along with the other books in the series - Making Materials Flow, Creating Level Pull etc. They are pricey books but worth it for the hands-on lean practitioner.

Many other authors make this stuff look like black magic.
Not so for Rother and Shook - they've produced an excellent text that quite rightly won the Shingo prize. The simple presentation and straigtforward explanation is a credit to the authors, especially since some of the techniques used are actually quite involved.
It's even spiral bound, so it stays open on the desk - almost as if they intended it to be used rather than kept on a shelf!
Buy it. Buy it now.

I got this book in order to assist me when teaching Lean.
It is really well set out and just as good as the training material given to me when I trained in Lean at GE.
This book is very clearly laid out and really strong at illustrating processes end-end and helping to find bottlenecks.
This book is also a great buy if you are looking to Value stream map in service industries, including healthcare.

I was fortunate to be coached in this technique many years ago and soon realised many go look but very few see and understand. The book helps me get the subject over while acting as a handy reference.

I would recommend Learning to See to anyone who is serious about optimising processes.
