"Making Common Sense Common Practice picks up where Lean Thinking left off. It fills in the gaps, and more importantly, provides the 'how' of implementing Lean Manufacturing."

"It's the best management book I've read in years." - John Ball, CEO, Thomas Steel Strip, Division of Hoogovens-British Steel
" ... needless to say I agree with every word!"
- Sandy Anderson, Senior Vice President-Technology, Imperial Chemical Industries
"...illuminating, entertaining, stimulating, inspiring, and laced with good, down-to-earth, practical common sense. From a Maintenance perspective, Ron makes the perfectly valid point that Maintenance's ability to provide a high level of plant performance is heavily influenced by practices in the other key areas. Ron outlines...some highly practical tips, snippets of information, and approaches which can lead to improvement in all of these areas. For example, there is an excellent few paragraphs on Pump Reliability Best Practices, which includes half a dozen very simple, but very practical tips. ...The style is highly readable, and never dull. I strongly recommend this book to Maintenance Engineers, Maintenance Managers, and non-Maintenance Managers, who wish to have their eyes opened to the real keys to Maintenance Improvement.
