Product description

The life of lean is experiments. All authority for any sensei flows from experiments on the gemba [the place where work takes place], not from dogmatic interpretations of sacred texts or the few degrees of separation from the founders of the movement. In short, lean is not a religion but a daily practice of conducting experiments and accumulating knowledge." So writes Jim Womack, who over the past 30 years has developed a method of going to visit the gemba at countless companies and keenly observing how people work together to create value. Gemba Walks shares his insights learning journey by collecting his reports and reflections from the field. By sharing his personal path of discovery, Womack sheds new light on the continued adoption and development of the most important new business system over the past 50 years. His journey will provide courage and inspiration for every lean practitioner today.
