Lean3 Project Management
Lean Project Management to build repeated Project Success
Lean3 Project Management is a ground-breaking book for Project Managers. It brings lessons from Lean Manufacturing into Project Management.
Lean Manufacturing was pioneered by Toyota in the 1950’s and has transformed factories worldwide. Project Management needs the same transformation, so we can deliver repeated project success.
This book explains how to transfer Lean concepts into Project Management.
Here are three examples
1) Toyota introduced collaborative design to fast-track the launch of a new car. Lean3 introduces collaborative Project Design into Project Management: a project should be designed, not just planned.
2) Lean Manufacturing has an emphasis on Value Streams; Lean3 brings an equivalent focus on the Project Flow, to optimise both the flow of work and the flow of value during the project.
3) Lean Manufacturing stresses Kaizen, to ensure Continuous Improvement on the production line and throughout the factory. Similarly, Lean3 explains how to implement Continuous Improvement in Project Management, so that each project helps deliver your Project Factory, which you improve year after year.
This is a practical book for Project Managers. There’s no Lean jargon in the book. No muda, mura or muri. The heart of the book is a simple Project Management method, with lots of examples. It’s minimal. It’s practical. It’s Lean.
Read this book if you want a new approach to Project Management, to deliver repeated project success.
