IN THIS SUMMARY
Whereas Lean thinking has traditionally been applied to manufacturing, it has great potential to improve other areas of operation as well. It can even benefit organizations that are not involved in manufacturing. The difficulty lies in the fact that, unlike production, business processes are not visible. In The Remedy, Pascal Dennis illustrates how Lean thinking can be utilized to improve organizations in areas other than manufacturing. Individuals who gain a solid understanding of Lean principles will learn how to apply them to any area in need of improvement. The book follows the rejuvenation of the fictional automotive company, Taylor Motors, as plant manager Tom Papas and other high ranking officials apply lean practices throughout the organization.
