About the Book

Progress and evolution are most often made in times of crisis and desperation, but not before. Or, to paraphrase a popular adage, “Better the devil you know than the angel you don’t.” Make the changes ahead of the curve! Robert Freck has attempted to convince people, companies, and cultures to change for more than thirty years, and in this memoir, he looks back on his career in Lean and continuous improvement implementation. In addition to looking at his career, he provides an instruction manual for leaders and organizations to enjoy a better Lean experience. Learn how to: avoid common missteps in lean implementation; identify and solve problems; leverage appropriate tools; understanding cultural change and how to drive it. help leaders enable, rather than support Lean via behaviors and actions. The author’s career has been filled with beautiful successes, abject failures, and several places in between, but there have always been lessons. He shares the wisdom he’s gained working in a variety of settings with A New Look at Lean.
