Overview

Praise for Lean Accounting Best Practices for Sustainable Integration

"Anyone involved in a lean transformation inevitably bumps up against the vagaries of the accounting systems that reward overproduction and waste and seem to punish true improvement. We wonder what would happen if the accountants actually came to the production floor and witnessed firsthand the havoc created by their systems. This volume gathers together some of the best thinkers to take a critical look at traditional cost accounting and defines a path forward to 'lean accounting.'"
—Jeff Liker
Professor of Industrial and Operations Engineering
University of Michigan

"Joe Stenzel has put together a timely compendium of writings from thought leaders in lean accounting. The viewpoints in this fine book are diverse and yet proclaim a consistent message: that conventional management accounting is broken—and here is how to fix it."
—Richard J. Schonberger
President
Schonberger & Associates

"If you are serious about understanding and implementing Lean Accounting in conjunction with your Lean Enterprise journey, this book will illuminate the specific techniques, but more importantly, will explain the cultural changes that are a prerequisite for success."
—Jerry Solomon
Vice President of Operations
Hunt Valley, for MarquipWardUnited, a division of Barry-Wehmiller Companies, Inc.
