Philip Holt is Head of Operational Excellence, Accounting Operations at Philips, and explains exactly what his model of Lean Leadership is, how we can learn to apply it and how you can convince the workplace never to settle for anything less than excellence. We also learn how to redefine our leadership style and how to identify and eliminate wasteful activities within the company. This way you can recognize, realize and retain the ideal state. In 'Leading with Lean', Philip Holt shows us the best ways to arrange a high-performance organization, and gives us simple tools and insights for each leader to aspire to greatness, for themselves and for their teams.

"Philip has written a clear and practical guide for Lean champions and existing Lean leaders, which provides an end-to-end guide on designing and sustaining a Lean transformation. If you are looking to build a culture of continuous improvement, whether at one or a multi-site level, this provides some real gems of practical 'know why' and 'know how' for Lean leaders everywhere." - Jon Tudor, president of the Association for Manufacturing Excellence UK
