lean companion2The Routledge Companion to Lean Management is the first volume to provide an academically rigorous overview of the field of lean management, introducing the reader to the application of lean in diverse application areas, from the production floor to sales and marketing, from the automobile industry to academic institutions.

EuroLEAN+ partner, Daryl Powell, and his co-editor Torbjørn Netland, have collected global lean knowledge from recognized experts and up-and-coming scholars from around the globe. Each chapter provides a detailed description of lean management from across the manufacturing enterprise (supply chain, accounting, production, sales, IT), and offers important perspectives for applying lean across different industries (construction, healthcare, logistics). The contributors address challenges and opportunities for future development in each of the lean application areas, concluding each chapter with a short case study to illustrate current best practice.

In keeping with the goals of EuroLAN+, this book meets the following objectives:

  • it collects an extensive sample of expert global lean knowledge in one place,
  • it provides a detailed description of lean management across all parts of the lean enterprise,
  • it offers important perspectives for applying lean across different industries.
