The Concepts of Lean Thinking

Doing a little research and found an article that pointed these out:

  • Sort: Eliminate what is not needed.
  • Set in order. Organize what remains.
  • Shine. Clean work area.
  • Standardize. Schedule cleaning and maintenance.
  • Sustain. Make lean thinking a way of life.
This is from the book Lean Thinking: Banish Waste and Create Wealth by Womack and Jones.

Hi there -

If you're coming to visit from Lifehack, welcome and have a look around. I have to say I haven't been keeping up very well here because I've gotten very busy with work and family. However, I'm planning on remodeling and moving to a new site because I've outgrown the book theme.

Nick's Book Blog is simply a collection of notes from my reading over the past year or two. My reading typically is through the prism of association management, which is what I do for a living, although I am very much interested in social networks and web 2.0 trends. I think these things are so interesting because they are related to community, which is what associations have been doing for along time.

Anyhow, stay tuned, and thanks for stopping by...
