Book Talk: Andy & Me

In the middle of summer, people are often looking for novels or other summer reading they can take to the beach. So today I thought I would discuss Andy & Me: Crisis and Transformation on the Lean Journeythe one novel published by Productivity Press.

Originally released in 1995, Andy & Me is set in a failing New Jersey auto plant focusing on the tribulations of Tom Pappas, the plant manager. It follows Tom's relationship with Andy Saito, a reclusive, retired Toyota guru whom Tom persuades to help save his plant through the teaching of the legendary Toyota Production System.

The writer is noted lean expert Pascal Dennis, who also authored a non-fiction work, Lean Production Simplified, Second Edition: A Plain-Language Guide to the World's Most Powerful Production System. Both books were awarded the Shingo Prize for Excellence in Manufacturing Research.

So if you’re looking for an entertaining way for your mind to absorb lean principles while your body soaks up some rays, place an order and we’ll be happy to send you a copy of Andy & Me. (Sunscreen not included.)
