All in favor of making our government Lean?

Over eight years ago I had my first encounter with Harry Kenworthy. I can still remember his words as they resonate in my head today every bit as much as they did then. “How do you make lean stick?

If you’re looking for theory, this probably is not the best book for you, but if you’re looking for a pragmatic approach to making government (or for that matter, any organization) more effective using powerful Lean concepts, Harry has unlocked the door! ~Paul
