About the Book
Lean3 Project Management is a ground-breaking book for Project Managers. It brings lessons from Lean Manufacturing into Project Management.
Lean Manufacturing was pioneered by Toyota in the 1950's and has transformed factories worldwide. The Lean Factory is flexible and efficient; and produces high quality products. Project Management needs the same transformation, so we can deliver repeated project success.
Read this book to understand how to transfer Lean concepts into Project Management.
- Toyota introduced collaborative design to fast-track the launch of a new car. Lean3 introduces collaborative Project Design into Project Management: a project should be designed, not just planned.
- Lean Manufacturing has a emphasis on Value Streams; Lean3 brings an equivalent focus on the Project Flow, to optimise both the flow of work and the flow of value during the project.
- Lean Manufacturing stresses Kaizen, to ensure Continuous Improvement on the production line and throughout the factory. Similarly, Lean3 explains, in practical terms, how to implement Continuous Improvement in Project Management, so that each project helps deliver your Project Factory, which you improve year after year.
There's no Lean jargon in the book. No muda, mura or muri. No 5S, takt time or TPM. Just a set of pertinent lessons from Lean Manufacturing, crafted into a coherent Project Management solution.
This is a practical book for Project Managers. At its heart is a simple Project Management method, which becomes your starting place, your initial standard for Project Management. It's minimal. It's Lean.
The method is well explained, with lots of examples (a sample project), supported by simple documents.
Read this book if you want a new approach to Project Management, to deliver repeated project success.
