This is an outstanding introduction to lean. Our company practices lean and this was a great addition to the concepts I have already learned. This book should be read/listened to by anyone that is going to put lean into practice. I've recommended this book to 4 people at our company in the last 2 weeks, so it's a winner!
Perhaps the unabridged version would have been better, but this 2 hour version was too lean to get a true appreciation and understanding of the Lean Thinking principles. Furthermore, while the principles could, in theory, be applied to various industries, all the examples, case studies and statistics presented are from manufacturing companies (which I personally do not care about).
The only thing that keep this CD from getting 5 stars is it is abridged. Lean thinking is the future and this is a great primer...
