    Implementing a lean business philosophy can transform an organization, bringing with it huge benefits in terms of reduced operating costs, decreased lead times, and increased customer satisfaction, along with a marked improvement in employee morale, customer loyalty, and quality of products and services. The lean business model – while originally developed within the US and Japanese automotive manufacturing industries – has proven its worth time and again in every field imaginable – from retail and manufacture to central government administration.  
    The right management is crucial for lean companies. As we shall see, lean is not just a set of tools that can be applied to any situation to reap rewards. Lean management involves taking a holistic approach to developing a specific culture throughout an organization – and a lean business culture can only be achieved if everyone buys in. A lean manager must, guide, coach and inspire – but beyond this they must be open and ready to learn on every step of their journey of continuous improvement.  
    This book will explore in more detail the specific role played by management in lean companies, before delving into the lean toolkit to show you what resources are available and how to get the most from them.

    Featuring an introduction by President Jimmy Carter 
    The Home Depot cofounder and owner of the NFL's Atlanta Falcons and MLS's Atlanta United shares a vision and a roadmap for values-based business. 
     
    Arthur M. Blank believes that for good companies, purpose and profit can-and should-go hand in hand. And he should know. Together with cofounder Bernie Marcus, Blank built The Home Depot from an idea and a dream to a $50 billion-dollar company, the leading home improvement retailer in the world. And even while opening a new store every 42 hours, they never lost sight of their commitment to care for their people and communities. In fact, in 2001, The Home Depot was voted America's most socially responsible company.  
     
    Blank left The Home Depot that same year with a burning question: Could the values and culture that made that company great be replicated? Good Company takes readers inside the story of how he did just that-turning around a struggling NFL team, rebooting a near-bankrupt retail chain, building a brand-new stadium, revitalizing a blighted neighborhood, launching a startup soccer club, and more. 
     
    ""When good companies put the wellbeing of their customers, their associates, and their communities first, financial success will follow,"" Blank writes. ""The entrepreneurs and business leaders of today and tomorrow have an extraordinary opportunity: to prove that through upholding values we can create value-for the company, for the customer, and for the community.""

    Jay Elliot was hired personally by Steve Jobs just in time to  accompany Steve on an historic visit to Xerox's Palo Alto Research  Center, the visit that changed the course of computing. As Senior  Vice President, Jay served as Steve's right-hand man and  trouble-shooter, overseeing all corporate operations and business  planning, as well as software development and HR. This book is  about how Steve managed and motivated his peopleand what  every manager can learn from Jobs about motivating people to do the  best work of their livesan experience described by many who  worked for him.   Steve Jobs used "Pirates! Not the Navy" as a rallying  crya metaphor to "Think Different". At Apple in the days of  developing the Macintosh, it became the de-facto mantra of the  Macintosh groupa four-word mission statement. It expresses  the heart of Apple and Steve. Those lessons form the backbone of  this book.  People are eager for practical examples from Apple and Steve  Jobs that show how his principles can be used in the everyday  worlds of business and managing people. "Managing With Steve Jobs"  will answer those requests. Overall, this book is a guide to  shifting a person's paradigm to become Steve Jobs-like, to assemble  and lead innovative teams.  For example, one of the most critical requirements is finding  the right talent. Steve had a unique way of interviewing that was  less an interview than a conversationdescribing where he  wanted to go and waiting to see if the other person would jump in  to suggest how he or she could make a contribution to that effort.  Also, he wasn't much interested in a person's resume as in what he  thought they would be able to bring to the team: will this person  be so committed to the vision that they will provide their own  motivation? Steve wanted people who would have allegiance to the  captain and to his/her shipmates, the ability to come up with  original, unique ways to approach a problem, and be self-guided  with a strong sense of direction.
