    Very little real content or ideas that can be applied in a company, too slow and repetitive for me I love reading different types of books and I m very interested in the topic but this book took me months to finish My favourite part were the quotes at the beginning of each chapter I don t understand why this book is so much on fashion in big companies.

    La description faite de ce livre par l auteur du framework SAFe mettait la barre assez haut Finalement, je trouve a assez mal crit et a manque un peu de lin arit Beaucoup moins bon que The Goal Quelques bonnes id es prendre sur l int gration complexe du Lean dans un process de d veloppement de produit, notamment les set bases design et le fonctionnement en Pull pour forcer les int grations des composants entre eux.

    A wonderful book on how Harley Davidson used lean ideas in product development The most important insight the book quotes from the Lean guru Jim Womack is Don t bring lean manufacturing upstream to product development and Allen War s words that Phase gate is evil Even though there have been umpteen number of advances in knowledge based product development in the recent times, I think the book provides a solid foundation for the same.
