Bølviken, Trond and Koskela, Lauri (2017) Book Review: This is Lean – Resolving the Efficiency Paradox by Niklas Modig and Pär Åhlström. Lean Construction journal, 2017. pp. 49-52. ISSN 1555-1369

This is Lean – Resolving the Efficiency Paradox is an ambitious contribution to the genre of easy reader introductions to lean. It is ambitious because the authors Niklas Modig and Pär Åhlström have a dual ambition. Their aim is to combine an easy reader explaining the concept of lean in an understandable way for an uninitiated audience with a theoretical and conceptual ambition,
namely to provide the definitive answer to the
question What is Lean? It is this combined ambition of simplifying and making a substantial
theoretical contribution that has prompted us to write this review.
