- Practical, in-depth description of lean office implementations, most of which have not been described in other publications.
- Responds to reader desire for real-world lean office information.
- Case Studies are categorized in three areas: Leadership, Organization and Training; Improving Processes; and Lean in Healthcare, making it easy to track down the type of information desired.
