Many lean books up to now have included statements or even chapters about the importance of leadership, culture, and behavior change in the transformation of an organization to a lean culture. But there has been a gap in most business books in providing specific instructions in how to motivate people to change from traditional approaches to making and providing products and services, to engaging in lean behaviors, so the organization can reap the benefits that come with less waste, faster flow, and improved customer satisfaction. Sustain Your Gains offers very specific descriptions of how to help people practice lean behaviors that will work in their organization, and continue practicing those behaviors, so the results gained from lean implementation continue on. --John Kaemmerlen, Industrial and Systems Engineering, Rochester Institute of Technology
