Getting Practically Lean: Interview with author Nigel Barnes

Add bookmark

Many large organisations have well-established Lean programs that makes them more efficient and productive. However, for many small businesses something like Lean can seem either too complicated or too obscure to be relevant to the day to day challenges of running a business. However, author and Lean practitioner Nigel Barnes is attempting to change that. In a new book out this month, called Practically Lean, Nigel has attempted to translate Lean concepts into a jargon-free language that everyone can understand. It’s effectively a how to guide for small businesses on how Lean can help them run a better, more efficient and profitable business. In this Process Perspectives podcast, Barnes describes why he wrote the book and what he hopes readers will take away from it.

Nigel Barnes' book Practically Lean is available from Amazon or iBooks. Find out more at
