"Leading" List

I am a believer that Leaders are Readers.  Stephen Covey taught that the 7th Habit of Highly Effective People is "Sharpening the Saw".  Reading provides exposure to new ideas and concepts.  I have started reading clubs with my ELT, Supervisors, and Team Leaders to get us on the same page.  Below I have listed the books I find most valuable.

Edwards Deming development of Total Quality Management that evolved into the Toyota Production System.  Lean is the elimination of non value add wastes.  Lean processes require leadership and team education.  The foundation of Lean is to establish Lean Daily Management.  At Lean Process Excellence we can help you get your transformation journey started and ensure each step is sustained to build on.
