ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
An unabridged dramatization of The Gold Mine: A Novel of Lean Turnaround, a Shingo Research Prize recipient in 2006.

The audio version, like the original book, presents all the key lean principles, ranging from well-known ideas such as pull and flow, to lesser-known yet equally important principles such as jidoka and heijunka. The book also reveals lean as a system—using a realistic business story that is both compelling and instructive to show how lean principles are interrelated.

The audio book features performances by multiple readers who bring its realistic business story and characters to life. You’ll hear from:

- Bob Woods, the curmudgeonly lean sensei;
- Mike Woods, Bob’s son who talks his father out of retirement to help Phil;
- Phil Jenkinson, the friend and struggling entrepreneur;
- Amy Cruz, Phil's HR manager;
- Plus, the managers and employees at Phil’s company

Phil Jenkinson is struggling to save his company; despite terrific products and a backlog of orders, Phil's company cannot generate enough cash from its operations to pay its bills. And so Mike, Phil's childhood friend, enlists his father Bob Woods to help his pal fix this crisis.

“You're trying to deal with your mess as if it was a technical problem,” Bob tells Phil. “Move this machine here, change this design there, which it is to some extent, but … it's all about people. You have a leadership problem not just a production or business problem.” As Phil begins to tackle the key challenges necessary to improve his company's operations, he comes to understand the deeper points of lean.

Managers and executives just beginning a lean transformation will get valuable insights about how to sidestep the technical and cultural problems of a lean conversion. And experienced lean thinkers will discover fresh insights about overcoming resistance to change.
