Written by GBMP’s own Bruce Hamilton (aka “The Toast Guy”) and Pat Wardwell.
What is e2?
e2 = everybody, everyday & the e2 system is a “Lean-by-Doing” process that takes theories and immediately puts them into practice in your own workplace through illuminating and effective exercises and assignments. This key component of e2 provides tacit learning to make lean techniques relevant and exciting in the context of your organization, regardless of the nature of your business.
e2 provides the know-why as well as the know-how (inspiration as well as information) to link Toyota’s technical aspects of lean to its grounding in “True North philosophy”.
e2 is a holistic approach to understanding and practicing lean thinking in every department and every level of your organization, from your executive suite to your shop floor.
e2 is a stand-alone resource for lean learning, but is also designed to utilize GBMP’s award-winning Lean DVDs.
e2 is the realization of the relationship between how we invest in people and learning to position ourselves for growth and to manage change. This book provides the umbrella under which lean philosophy, tools and systems fall.
