Many business-improvement practitioners have expertise, techniques and case studies that would benefit the lean community. Discover if and how you should publish this information.


Many business practitioners involved in lean and performance-improvement initiatives have acquired effective expertise, knowledge and insight through their experiences in the field. They know that documenting this information in published form would greatly benefit the lean community, but as they have no previous professional publishing experience, they do not know how the process functions - from submitting a proposal to publishing an actual book - and how they, as well as the lean community, benefit from collaborating with a professional and established publisher. This session will answer all your questions in regard to the publishing experience.


Productivity Press has developed the largest catalog available anywhere of publications and learning tools about lean enterprise and continuous improvement. It is the premier source of authoritative information on organizational improvement and business culture transformation. Productivity Press is constantly introducing new books, bringing you cutting-edge thinking from today's top improvement authorities and continues to offer respected lean classics, giving access to works that are both timely and timeless.
