Additional Book Details

End-to-End Lean Management: A Guide to Complete Supply Chain Improvement fills an important void in the current literature. It shows how to apply Lean tools and techniques across the entire supply chain: from suppliers, through transportation, into operations, and through distribution to customers, with principles applicable to all types of organizations. Managers across all industries under constant pressure to find new sources of competitive advantage and to demonstrate performance improvements will find this book a timely and necessary resource.
