It was a thing waiting to happen. Now author Rafael Ortiz transforms Lean Six Sigma from its boardroom clothes into everyday wear. It becomes a lifestyle, a way of effecting dramatic change in life the Lean way. Lean Life is the wave of the future – Lean is the 21st century business paradigm which has seeped into modern culture in a way that human society instinctively wants it to become a permanent fixture in its lifeways.

For those who have ever thought about applying in life the tools that companies use to improve their processes, this book is as seminal as influential out of the box business books such as Robert Ringer’s Winning Through Intimidation in the seventies or Alvin Toffler’s Future Shock in the eighties. What distinguishes Rafael Ortiz from them is that he applies a powerful, even arcane, business process to living, into daily biorhythm.

What readers will get from this book is the Lean methodology. The thing that Ortiz shares from a winning business formula is a way of helping readers in converting the vision of their future selves into actions to transform their lives towards that vision. Readers are cordially invited to read this book, apply its learning, and then share their achievements with others.
