If you want to expand and develop your lean knowledge and not sure what you should read, then John Bicheno’s Top 100 Lean Related Books is a great place to start.
John started the list in the late 1990’s when developing the world’s first lean master’s programme at LERC, Cardiff University and has been regularly updating it since, so newly published books have an opportunity to be included. The Top 100 is now in its 38th edition.
The list provides useful information on each book:
- Whether it is manufacturing or service focussed (or both)
- A short descriptive comment on its content, theme or focus
- Year of publication
- Amazon ranking (where available)
- JB’s personal one to five star rating for each book
