Alan Shalloway presents two ways to look at Lean: 1) Lean as a thought process, a culture, a way for an organization to be, and 2)how to use Lean to solve problems. Alan presents the case that Lean-Thinking can be used to solve many problems that face organizations. Lean-Thinking does not require an organization to become Lean, but gives the people involved more tools to become more effective.
