After a decade of downsizing and reengineering, most companies in North America, Europe, and Japan are still stuck, searching for a formula for sustainable growth and success. The problem, as Womack and Jones explain in Lean Thinking, is that managers have lost sight of value for the customer and how to create it. By focusing on their existing organizations and outdated definitions of value, managers create waste, and the economies of the advanced countries continue to stagnate. What's needed instead is lean thinking to help managers clearly specify value, to line up all the value-creating activities for a specific product along a value stream, and to make value flow smoothly at the pull of the customer in pursuit of perfection. The first part of the book describes each of these concepts and makes them come alive with striking examples. As Lean Thinking clearly demonstrates, these simple ideas can breathe new life into any company in any industry, routinely doubling both productivity and sales while stabilizing employment. But most managers will need guidance on how to make the lean leap in their firm. Part II provides a step-by-step action plan, based on in-depth studies of fifty lean companies in a wide range of industries across the world - including Pratt & Whitney, Porsche, and Toyota. Even those readers who believe they have embraced lean thinking will discover in Part III that another dramatic leap is possible by creating a lean enterprise for each of their product families that tightly links all value-creating activities from concept to product launch, from order to delivery, and from raw materials into the arms of the consumer. This new concept takes the best features from the American, German, and Japanese industrial traditions and recombines them in a way that can be applied to every economic activity, from long distance travel to construction to health care

Jetzt zeigen die Erfinder des Lean Managements, was ein Unternehmen tun muss, damit es nah am Kunden bleibt. Denn viele Unternehmen wollen ihre Kunden davon überzeugen, dass sie dieses Produkt oder jene Dienstleistung brauchen. Das aber ist - so die Autoren - der falsche Ansatz. Statt die Kunden zu überreden, etwas zu kaufen, das sie eigentlich nicht zwingend brauchen, sollten die Unternehmen erst die Kundenwünsche ermitteln und dann ihre Produktentwicklung daran ausrichten. Wer Erfolg im Markt erzielen will, dem muss klar sein: Der Kunde will nicht das perfekte Produkt, sondern die perfekte Lösung seines Problems
