Book Talk: Innovative Lean Development

Steelcase is a company with a solid reputation of implementing lean principles – in all areas, not just manufacturing. Now two of the company’s internal lean consultants have written a book about lean in product development.

Innovative Lean Development: How to Create, Implement and Maintain a Learning Culture Using Fast Learning Cycles by Timothy Schipper and Mark Swets focuses on the six key areas necessary for dramatic development: innovation, rapid prototyping, knowledge capture, learning cycles, process stabilization, and lean management standards.

This book, available next month, is a manual that serves as a template for starting and maintaining the lean process. It includes both explanations and real examples, and explains how to integrate innovation into product development processes, including IT development.

Innovative Lean Development joins other books we publish on product development, including The Toyota Product Development System by James Morgan and Jeffrey Liker, and Value Stream Mapping for Lean Development by Drew Locher, to name just a couple.
