Lean Books

Your lean program starts here

Lean manufacturing, often called just “Lean,” is a production system that focuses on eliminating waste in order to increase quality and value. It focuses on streamlining processes, while also respecting people and involving people in making those processes better. In many workplaces, Lean involves concepts and practices such as 5S, Kaizen, Kanban, Just-in-Time, and Heijunka. Learning about these concepts and implementing them in ways that will actually be useful might seem like a daunting task. With the write knowledge and training, though, Lean and its components can make a facility significantly more efficient and productive. 

Below you’ll find a selection of Lean books that will provide you with the information you need to start your Lean journey. Choose from texts that cover 5S, Kaizen, Lean for hospitals and other healthcare environments, Six Sigma, and more. These texts are written by Lean practitioners and other experts who make these Lean concepts easy to understand. You can also keep these books on hand to use as references or to share with your employees or coworkers.

Once you have a basic understanding of Lean and how it might be useful for you, head over to our Lean supplies and training section to find more resources and tools.
