Business & Management

Lean is a set of disciplines that can result in tremendous savings and
profitability for companies. It can significantly reduce cycle times and
increase customer satisfaction. Lean, however, must be applied efficiently
and effectively to achieve optimum results. This book discusses project
management concepts, tools, and techniques as they apply to managing Lean
projects. It explains how you can apply the discipline of project management
to fully harness the energy and power that Lean offers.

Managing Lean Projects begins by discussing the major concepts and
techniques that make Lean so powerful. It details the many benefits of
Lean, along with the key challenges that must be overcome to fully reap its
benefits. The book then goes on to describe the project management tools
and techniques you can use to get the most out of Lean. It explains how the
structure of each key project management process helps to keep the Lean
project on course.

The book devotes separate chapters to the project management processes
for PDCA (plan, do, check, act) and DMAIC (define, measure, analyze,
improve, control) Lean lifecycles. In both chapters, detailed case studies
help to demonstrate the concepts presented in a real-world situation. The
author includes numerous diagrams, examples, and checklists throughout
the book to get you started quickly managing Lean projects.

As Lean continues to pick up momentum across many industries, it becomes
imperative that project managers learn how to use it to achieve the desired
results. With this book, project managers will be well-equipped to lead,
not just manage, their Lean projects to success and to the benefit of their
organization and the people who work in it.
