In 2010, ARGO-EFESO’s Senior Vice President and Lean Innovation & Product Development Practice Leader Dantar Oosterwal published The Lean Machine: How Harley-Davidson Drove Top-Line Growth and Profitability with Revolutionary Lean Product Development.

Winner of the 2017 Shingo Prize for Literature, The Lean Machine, which is part business journal, part analysis, and part step-by-step toolkit, takes readers through the day-to-day transformation at Harley and identifies universal change and improvement issues so that companies in any industry can incorporate this game-changing system, with predictably excellent results.

In the decade that has followed, many things have changed. World economies have arose from recession; emerging technologies ushered in new capabilities; and innovative products and services threatened conventional business models and long-standing industrial leaders. During the decade, the process of innovation similarly evolved, and we have learned and progressed in our understanding of lean product development (LPD).


In response to these changes,  ARGO-EFESO has published a new version of The Lean Machine, with an updated preface on what we have learned in the past 10 years and a tear-out copy of the 7+1 Principles of Lean Product Development. Please fill out the form below to receive a hardcover copy.
