By Robert B Camp: Go and See: A Journey About Getting To Lean is a giant small book, easy to read, easy to understand, and full of the kinds of guides and metrics a professional will need to succeed in the Lean world.
While Go and See is in some respects a complete handbook about Lean, it is also a passionate persuasion for managers and workers to at least begin the journey.
The raison d'etre of Go and See is that there is no long-term substitute for learning and taking to heart and hand the rubric of Lean. Industries cannot be saved by a continual shift of locale to ever-new fonts of cheaper labor. Once a company has gone 'Lean" it can compete successfully with any company with any low cost of labor - - anywhere. Lean measurements of productivity and profit (metrics) must be designed and flow from the top of an organization and not relegated to the shop floor - - the place m ost Kaizen events are focused. If the very highest management and the directors of an organization do not adopt and live by the principles of Lean for themselves, Lean will never succeed in the factory or the industry.
