What is lean? Where did it originate? What can it help you achieve?
True Lean gives in-depth answers to these questions.

Using more than forty full-colour images, Rudy Gort – author of ‘the
best lean book in the Netherlands’ – explains the essence and power
of lean in a very clear and understandable way.

True Lean consists of three parts:

• Origin – In order to understand the philosophy behind lean, the
origin and evolution of what is now called lean is explained. This
part goes back to the roots and core.

• Principles – The underlying principles are clearly explained using
the ‘house of lean’ model and real-life examples. This part presents
a holistic view of the system.

• Performance – Things can be done better, faster and cheaper: an
apparent contradiction. And that’s just the first step on the path
towards becoming a learning and agile organisation!

True Lean is the ideal book for students, teachers, employees and
managers who want to learn about lean.

True Lean has been rated by its readers with 5 stars and obtained a spot in the top 10.

“True Lean is the best introduction to lean that I have read to date.
Highly recommended!”

“The lean philosophy’s holistic approach perfectly explained at last.”

“Lean is often associated with processes, tools and improved efficiency. At Toyota, however, lean is first and foremost a culture that defines how we work. It is based on permanent improvement and respect for people. True Lean explains this very well.”
– Lex van den Elsen, Toyota Way Ambassador – Toyota Netherlands

“Value starts with valuing people.”
– Rudy Gort
