A complete Dutch translation of ‘The Service Systems Toolbox’ from John Bicheno
‘De toolbox voor dienstverlening’ describes in detail the three most powerful concepts for service delivery in the 21st century: Lean thinking, design thinking and systems thinking, and explains exactly how they can be applied. Lean is internationally recognised as the most professional and effective method for continuous improvement of internal business processes.
The concepts and associated tools have been elaborated from case studies, research and consulting practice, carried out by the authors themselves and by students from the Lean Enterprise Research Centre (LERC), Cardiff Business School and The University of Buckingham.
This complete translation of ‘The Service Systems Toolbox’ by John Bicheno is based on the latest edition and includes a previously unpublished deepening of ‘Kingman’s equation’. With the added Dutch cases from Lean practice and recommendations from involved managers, this is the most complete and user-friendly edition of John Bicheno’s standard work.
On 7 December 2022, Gijs Wijers and Marjolijn Feringa handed the first copy of edition 2022 to John Bicheno – Live from Buckingham. Watch and listen to inspiring case presentations from Flora Holland and Heineken.
