Quarterman Lee has been a renowned expert in the field of manufacturing improvement for many years. His latest work, Value Stream and Process Mapping, is the most comprehensive and practical book on the subject to date. Value stream and process mapping are both critical tools to a successful lean transformation, and this book is truly an implementation guide that includes many of the details that are not found in other works on the subject.

The book is very good in its content, the best I read so far on explaining VSM for starters.

I loved the cartoon style graphics- it made it fun to read & easy to understand. Nice way to introduce Lean to people who are not familiar with lean. Good training material! I look forward to the Kanban book since I know you will use the same style to convey your messages - I will buy same. Thank you . Nice job!

The Guide to Value Stream Mapping would be helpful as a starting point for Value Stream Mapping or as a companion to other guidebooks. This book has some helpful tips on facilitating group VSM exercises - not just how to draw the diagrams - and helps put VSMs in the greater lean context, with photos and examples of related lean practices - instead of focusing on doing VSMs for the sake of doing VSMs.
