5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 21 Mar 2013
There are many books about lean production, but not so much on how to apply the lean principles on self-management. There are many similarities with David Allen's Getting Things Done (GTD) system in this book, which is perhaps somewhat natural as GTD can easily be interpreted as personal lean management. But, there is more than that. The book is not only about planning and evaluating actions, it is also about designing personal work processes in cost-optimal ways. Most of the ideas come directly from the theory and practice of lean management, so there is not necessarily all that much that is new here, but the context to which it is being put to use is highly interesting. It is also written in a very excessible and sometimes humours style, which makes the reading quite pleasant, and it is also a good way of learning about lean by first applying the principles to oneself before trying to revolutionise the work place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful as both an introduction and a reference, 30 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had come across Lean at work only as a peripheral influence where other departments were using it. I knew that it could be very useful, but had never had the time or circumstances where I could test out my theories.

This book shows you how you can use the techniques of Lean in almost any circumstances.

I found it to be not only an excellent introduction, but also a good reference source and go back to it from time to time to keep me on the right track.

I recommend this to all those who think they can still improve how they do things at work (although the principals are not limited to the working environment).
