Summary Description

Everyone knows that in order to reach optimum levels of health, you have to exercise -- and that you have to keep at it, day after day after day. It’s the same with process improvement, and, specifically, lean processes. Why, then, do companies invariably fail in their pursuit of operational excellence? In this practical, hands-on guide, we’ll walk you step-by-step through the process of making lean as intrinsic to your company as the pursuit of profits. You will learn how to make an unshakeable commitment to increasing the value provided by doing the right work in the right way with continuous monitoring of processes and structured coaching for everyone.

Everyone knows that in order to reach optimum levels of health, you have to exercise -- and that you have to keep at it, day after day after day.

It’s the same with process improvement, and, specifically, lean processes. Everything there is to know about lean has been revealed. Countless books, articles, and seminars provide business leaders all the information they need to understand how lean works and how effective it can be when fully implemented. Why, then, do companies invariably fail in their pursuit of operational excellence?

They fail for the same reason people fail to trim fat through exercise. They don’t do it. They try to squeeze it into their schedule; they don’t make it part of their schedule. And, inevitably, it becomes less of a priority. In the same vein, too many business leaders see process improvement as a project, something separate from the more “pressing” goals of profits and growth.

That’s where they go wrong. And that’s where our summary of Building the Fit Organization, by Daniel Markovitz, comes in. Markovitz is president of Markovitz Consulting, a firm that helps organizations become faster, stronger, and more agile through the application of lean principles to knowledge work.

In this practical, hands-on guide, we’ll walk you step-by-step through the process of making lean as intrinsic to your company as the pursuit of profits. You will learn how to make an unshakeable commitment to increasing the value provided by doing the right work in the right way with continuous monitoring of processes and structured coaching for everyone.
