Summary "Hitchhikers do not travel a fixed path. They intentionally wander so they can learn and grow along the way. Embarking on the lean journey is similar; there are many roads on which to wander and no single one is right for all. The Hitchhiker's Guide to Lean: Lessons from the Road reveals the most critical lessons learned over the authors' combined 30-plus years of exploring the lean highways."--BOOK JACKET.
