Lean Enterprise: closing the loop with Japan
I’m delighted to announce the release the Japanese translation of my book, Lean Enterprise: How High Performance Organizations Innovate At Scale.
Firstly, I wanted to thank Masanori Kado for his commitment, desire and willingness to spend late nights and long days translating the entire book. It is a selfless task and highlights his passion to bring the ideas captured in the book to his local community and native language. Thank you Masanori.
Secondly, thanks to O’Reilly Media Japan for their supporting in publishing the book in the Japanese market.
The book has now been translated into Japanese, Chinese and Portuguese (Brasilian). I’m continually amazed by the international interest and impact the book has had.Thanks to all that have read it, shared it and encouraged others to pick it up across the world.

I will be spending the majority on October in Japan visiting Toyota and other businesses in the country.
