Vanek, S. and D. Ingram 2014. Principles and approaches for optimizing efficiency in nursery and landscape businesses Lean Mangament HO110

WOW! This is the only comprehensive approach using LEAN management for nurseries. The article provides many real-world examples of how operations can be improved using concepts of Lean Management, a program developed from the principles of the Toyota Production System (from Toyota Motor Corporation). The goal of the article isn’t to teach Lean Management, but to stimulate new ideas and ways of approaching efficiency. The article is also available at the following link http://www2.ca.uky.edu/agc/pubs/HO/HO110/HO110.pdf. From the Sustainable Production Systems Series from Kentucky Cooperative Extension.
