If you are looking for a lively, down-to-earth experience in the journey to innovative engineering management, this is definitely the book for you. The author’s 20-plus year perspective indicates that, while most engineers will spend the majority of their careers as managers, most are dissatisfied with the transition. Much of this frustration is the result of lack of preparation and training. This book gives you a solid grounding in the critical attitudes and principles needed for success. The book teaches you how to internalize the attitudes and master the associated skills needed to excel in, and be satisfied with your transition to management. Learn how to communicate more effectively and improve relationships with your colleagues. Realize an improved use of your time, resulting primarily from learning and practicing a number of "soft" skills which flow from developing the necessary attitudes for management. Use your newly acquired skills to solve immediate problems.

"Moving Forward Faster" reveals the deep secrets of Lean management. This provocative and insightful book clearly explains why Lean management, despite its overwhelming advantages over conventional management, has yet to become ubiquitous in organizations.

It will challenge, annoy, frighten, enlighten, frustrate, educate, and enliven readers. Readers will gain a clear picture of how remarkably different Lean leaders’ minds are compared to conventional leaders’ minds. The differences range from great to small and reflect an overall way of thinking that completely upends the norm - for the customer, and for the better.

"Real Lean" (Volume 4) shows how Lean management is itself a craft that can only be learned as any other craftsman would learn their trade. This unique perspective creates a much clearer impression of what executives need to do in order to become Lean leaders. Their learning must be much deeper than they might have imagined, but the result will be much better than they would have expected. As with prior Volumes of Real Lean , Volume Four emphasizes Lean as a management system and the “Respect for People” principle, because both are so often missing from the practice of Lean management. Topics Covered Include: • Ten Thousand Hours • Learn Lean When Times Are Good • Learning to Think • Let's Stop Making the Same Mistake • Don't Aim Low • The Eighth Waste • The Other Information System • One Step Forward, Eleven Back • The Ethical Management System • Policies for Learning • Eleven Questions • Emiliani's Rules
