The Gold Mine – A Leaders Study Guide

Ideally, we would all learn how to implement a lean transformation by going to the gemba, where a skilled sensei would stand by our side, helping us observe and understand how our entire team success—at planning, executing, and evolving our strategy. This seasoned veteran would help us reflect on our experience, and work with the team on generating new knowledge and continuous improvement. Unfortunately, senseis are in short supply today, and there aren’t enough model transformation that provide an insider’s view of how lean initiatives really work. Where can we find guidance in leading a team through a lean transformation?

The Gold Mine, a novel of lean transformation, sheds light on how lean managers can address the many challenges to rolling out systematic change. This reader’s guide to The Gold Mine is designed to help lean leaders support their teams as they work through the process of learning lean from the ground up. A growing number of management teams in the Lean community have been inviting members to read The Gold Mine and apply its insights and information to their own transformation. LEI has developed A Leader’s Study Guide to The Gold Mine: Moving Lean from Theory to Practice to make these discussions even richer. With its chapter summaries, suggested discussion points and recommended resources, perhaps the guide can even provide just a little sensei wisdom as well.
