iMprove: the Next Generation of Continuous Improvement guides small- and medium-sized operations to implement lean conversion practices without the need for an expensive consultant, lean master or `sensei.'

Using real-world examples from manufacturing, health care, product development and customer service, Ellis covers methods used to implement lean operations, including: PDCA/Deming/Shewhart; Lean Six Sigma; Flow improvement; Metrics A3 Process; Fishbone/Affinity/Matrix Diagrams; Agile/Lean project management. This book is a valuable resource for engineering managers, project managers, process improvement professionals and owners/managers of small- to medium-sized operations looking to implement lean conversion.
