Jamie Flinchbaugh’s Books

Jamie Flinchbaugh has always aimed to make ideas and advice as accessible to people as possible. To help make lean concepts understandable, he and follow lean consultant Andy Carlino co-wrote The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Lean to share their ideas. Jamie and Andy have been very pleased with the response to the book, as many companies continue to use it as required reading for their leaders.

Jamie added the eBook A3 Problem Solving later, in part to help solidify his own ideas, but also to provide people with an accessible way to understand this versatile method.

We hope you enjoy these books, and always appreciate any feedback, questions, or ideas you would like to share.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Lean

by Jamie Flinchbaugh (Author), Andy Carlino (Author), Dennis Pawley (Foreword)

Hitchhikers do not travel a fixed path. They intentionally wander so they can learn and grow along the way. Embarking on the lean journey is similar, there are many roads on which to wander and no single one is right for all. “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Lean: Lessons from the Road” reveals the most critical lessons learned over the authors’ combined 30-plus years of exploring the lean highways.

A3 Problem Solving: Applying Lean Thinking

by Jamie Flinchbaugh

This ebook on A3 Problem Solving is meant to demystify some of what people know and hear about A3s. In the past 5 years, it has become one of the most prominent lean tools. But while the work itself is hard, the method doesn’t have to be as complicated as it is made. In this ebook, we get to the core of what it’s all about, how you use it, and connect it to lean thinking throughout. After all, a template is useless without the thinking.
