Lean 3P more than just Design 0

In a recent Business901 podcast, Use the Lean 3P Process to drive Effective Change, I discussed with co-author of the book, Dan McDonnell, how to use Lean 3P within the organization not only for Lean Product Development but also for any type of change program.

About the book, Unleashing the Power of 3P: The Key to Breakthrough Improvement: A go-to guide for 3P execution, this book: Details a proven methodology for successful implementation of even the most aggressive corporate change programs Presented in workbook format with real-world examples. Suitable for beginner, intermediate, and advanced practitioners of continuous improvement. The book outlines time-tested methods that can be applied to any combination of product, process, and facility design to reduce costly redesign iterations and associated delays. Based on a true story, it takes you on a journey as Enterride (fictional company) completes a new production start-up in dramatically reduced time and cost.
