Lean Leadership: From Manager to Leader

A Lean Book

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

As a leader or manager, your job is to work with your team to meet your organization’s goals. But as you know, that’s not always as simple as it sounds. It’s very easy to be busy but never really get anything done; always rushing but never really sure how what you’re doing fits into the bigger picture.

If this sounds familiar, then Lean Leadership has been written for you.

Lean Leadership tells the story of Charlie, a manager in a chocolate factory, and his team. With the company under threat from widening global competition, there is an urgent need for change. In the past Charlie has taken on every problem as his to solve alone. Now, as he struggles with his own health challenges as well as the company’s challenges, he needs to do things differently. He needs to transform himself from manager to leader.

Whether you are an experienced senior manager, new to management, or a student of leadership, you’ll find Lean Leadership provides fresh insight into this often complex world in a readable and entertaining way. You’re guaranteed to come away energized and inspired.

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING:

“Effectively shares some very practical operational management and leadership concepts in a way that few other leadership and management texts do. A very practical 'how to' in effective leadership and operational management"
Hayden McNamara, COO of Australian and New Zealand Bank, USA

"Simply shows how the lean methodology can be used to manage effectively. A great book that should be read by all – from managers to operations staff. The more people that are aware and utilize the concepts the more dynamic and efficient business will become."
Nina Muhleisen, Toyota Manufacturing Corporation Australia.

“What I liked about the book was the lack of management jargon, making the book easy to follow and understand. Demonstrates, in a practical and unique way, how to get better business results, particularly in operational environments.”
Ron Locke, Former Barclays Bank IT Director, UK

“I found the book brought out many of the behavioral aspects that would not have been achieved via the alternative 'text book' approach. It explores subtle themes such as resistance to change, disconnection across teams, and lack of accountability. A good read for managers at all levels.”
Richard Codd, Operations Manager, Trade and Supply Chain, ANZ
