Synopsis

In seven simple steps...



Lean removes waste: wasted money, energy, resources.



Lean will give you the gift of time.



Lean is a set of principles embraced by the most creative and dynamic organisations around the world, and now for the first time, Swedish social entrepreneur Eva Jarlsdotter applies them to family life.



Embracing the Japanese 'stream' technique, Eva's seven steps show you how to systematically create and maintain order. From kaizen (continuous improvement) to kanban (visual planning), these principles will bring harmony and a sense of flow to your home. No more time wasted searching for your keys, important paperwork or your internet banking password; no more throwing away food past its sell-by date or arguing about the mess; no more feeling on the back foot all the time. This transformative book will also empower children in the household to take responsibility for their belongings and their schedules, meaning a lot less parental nagging.



This modern guide will transform family life from the inside out. The time you save can be channelled into doing things you actually want to do. Be inspired by Eva's own story, understand how Lean works and start to apply her small changes to your everyday life - you will be delighted with the results.
