Sheryl Sandberg examina las razones por las cuales el avance de las mujeres hacia los puestos de responsabilidad está estancado, explica las causas profundas y ofrece soluciones prácticas y aplicables para lograr que las mujeres alcancen su máximo potencial. A pesar de que las mujeres alcanzaron hace años niveles de educación similares a los de los hombres, ellos ostentan aún la gran mayoría de puestos de directivos, tanto en las empresas como en los gobiernos. Por ello, las voces femeninas todavía no se escuchan por igual en las decisiones que más nos afectan en nuestras vidas. Sandberg, directora de Operaciones de Facebook y una de las mujeres más influyentes del mundo en el ámbito de la empresa, impartió en 2010 una inolvidable conferencia en TEDTalk, que se convirtió en un fenómeno y que ha sido vista dos millones de veces. En Vayamos adelante, Sandberg profundiza en estos temas combinando anécdotas personales y datos relevantes, y proporciona consejos prácticos para el desarrollo de una carrera profesional satisfactoria, alentando a las mujeres a establecer límites y a abandonar el mito de «haber alcanzado todo». Escrito con humor y sabiduría, el libro de Sandberg es una llamada inspiradora a la acción y un plan de crecimiento individual. Vayamos adelante está destinado a cambiar el planteamiento sobre qué pueden hacer las mujeres y qué no. Los expertos opinan: «Sheryl proporciona recomendaciones prácticas sobre cómo gestionar y superar los desafíos que se presentan a lo largo de una carrera profesional. Al leer este libro, asentía con la cabeza y me reía a carcajadas. Vayamos adelante es una lectura excelente, divertida, sincera e importante para las mujeres (y los hombres) de todas las generaciones.» Condoleezza Rice, ex secretaria de Estado de EE.UU. «Durante los últimos cinco años he trabajado codo a codo con Sheryl y he aprendido algo de ella casi cada día. Tiene una inteligencia asombrosa, que le permite resolver procesos complejos y encontrar soluciones a los problemas más difíciles. Vayamos adelante combina la habilidad para sintetizar de Sheryl con sus capacidades para sacar lo mejor de la gente. Este libro es brillante, honesto y divertido. Sus palabras ayudarán a sus lectores -especialmente a los hombres- a ser unos líderes mejores y más eficaces.» Mark Zuckerberg, fundador y CEO de Facebook «La clave para abrir algunas de las puertas más difíciles de la vida ya está en nuestras manos. El libro de Sheryl nos recuerda que somos capaces de alcanzar la excelencia.» Alicia Keys, cantante «Si te encantó el increíble discurso en TEDTalk de Sheryl Sandberg sobre por qué hay pocas mujeres en puestos de liderazgo o si simplemente crees, como yo, que necesitamos igualdad en las salas de las juntas directivas, este libro es para ti. Como directora de Operaciones de Facebook, Sheryl posee experiencia de primera mano y sabe que disponer de más mujeres en los puestos de directivos es bueno, tanto para las empresas como para la sociedad. Vayamos adelante es una lectura esencial para cualquier persona interesada en acabar con esta desigualdad injusta.» Sir Richard Branson, presidente de Virgin Group «Vayamos adelante plantea muchos retos ambiciosos para las mujeres: crear la vida que queremos, ser líderes en nuestro trabajo, colaborar en nuestros hogares y ser ejemplo para otras mujeres. Sheryl nos ofrece consejos prácticos sobre cómo las mujeres podemos afrontar esos retos en el siglo XXI. Espero que las mujeres y los hombres de mi generación lean este libro para ayudar a construir la vida que deseamos y el mundo donde queremos vivir.» Chelsea Clinton

The #1 international best seller In Lean In, Sheryl Sandberg reignited the conversation around women in the workplace. Sandberg is chief operating officer of Facebook and coauthor of Option B with Adam Grant. In 2010, she gave an electrifying TED talk in which she described how women unintentionally hold themselves back in their careers. Her talk, which has been viewed more than six million times, encouraged women to “sit at the table,” seek challenges, take risks, and pursue their goals with gusto. Lean In continues that conversation, combining personal anecdotes, hard data, and compelling research to change the conversation from what women can’t do to what they can. Sandberg provides practical advice on negotiation techniques, mentorship, and building a satisfying career. She describes specific steps women can take to combine professional achievement with personal fulfillment, and demonstrates how men can benefit by supporting women both in the workplace and at home. Written with humor and wisdom, Lean In is a revelatory, inspiring call to action and a blueprint for individual growth that will empower women around the world to achieve their full potential.

Lean Construction is a way to do more and more with less and less; less effort, less equipment, less time and less space whilst providing customers with exactly what they want. A Lean system, process, and organisation is one that is waste free. Lean is not about size or number of people employed. A reduction in employees may cut costs, and eliminate the waste of those employees, but does not decrease the proportion of waste to value adding within the organisation or process. Most waste is through products waiting to be worked on by succeeding activities. Construction is possibly the last frontier for lean. Although manufacturing’s productivity has improved during the last 40 years, the construction industry has experienced a slight decline. Even though the construction world has embraced high-tech tools, we still manage projects the same way we always have, and we are still getting the same poor results. Less than 30 percent of projects come in on time, on budget, and within specification. The answers to improving construction productivity are not in more software or technology.

Lean is designed to reduce the seven "deadly forms of waste": defects, overproduction, over processing, wasted motion, inventory (work in process), transport/handling and waiting. Addressing any or all of these can help operations run more efficiently and therefore, be more competitive which is in the long-term best interest of job security. But, in my experience as a former union member and internal change agent and currently as an organizational change consultant, Lean implementation in union environments can be tricky. Here's why.

Typically entrenched and systemic, healthcare problems require the sort of comprehensive solutions that can only be addressed by a change in culture and a shift in thinking. Applying Lean in Healthcare: A Collection of International Case Studies demonstrates how honest appraisal, intelligent planning, and vigilant follow-up have led to dramatic improvements in a variety of healthcare settings across the world. It teaches us how innovative organizations can find sustainable solutions to seemingly intractable problems by following a path guided by Lean Thinking. Lean methods may not solve every healthcare problem, but as these cases prove, changing a culture rather than personnel results in more effective sustainable change.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a summary of the book and NOT the original book. Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg - A 30-minute Summary Inside this Instaread Summary: • Overview of the entire book • Introduction to the important people in the book • Summary and analysis of all the chapters in the book • Key Takeaways of the book • A Reader's Perspective Preview of this summary: When Sandberg got pregnant she was working at Google, which at the time was only an obscure startup. As the company grew, and her pregnancy advanced, she started to notice things that were not helpful to her condition, such as the lack of parking spots for pregnant women at the front of the building. She expressed the need for pregnancy parking to Sergey Brin, one of Google’s founders, and he immediately agreed. This experience made her wonder about other pregnant women who suffered in silence due to the lack of parking and other special considerations. Women in the modern developed world, thanks to the work of their predecessors, are better off than women of the past and women in undeveloped countries. However, there is still a lot to do. Figures show that women are still at great disadvantage when it comes to obtaining positions of leadership and equal salaries to men. When Sandberg started working she thought things were changing, but she soon realized they were not because she was often the only woman in the room. Sandberg believes that a truly equal world would have women running half the corporate world and men running half the homes. Collective performance improves when you tap the entire pool of human resources and talent. This should start by having more women in positions of power. However, there are many external and internal barriers to this goal. The external barriers include: sexism, discrimination, and sexual harassment. In addition, women are normally expected to prove themselves. They are promoted based on past accomplishments, whereas men are often promoted based on potential. Women also face barriers within themselves: lack of self-confidence, prejudices, and low expectations. It is critical for women to overcome these internal and external barriers. The first chapter of the book lays out some of the complex challenges that women face, and each subsequent chapter focuses on how to overcome each of them. It is not a memoir, nor is it a self-help book. It is written for any woman wishing to increase her chances to make it to the top. As a disclaimer, Sandberg acknowledges that she has been criticized for “blaming the victim” by pressing women to change themselves, but the truth is far from that. She believes that female leaders are the solution to a more balanced world. It is time to encourage more women to “dream the possible dream” and more men to support their effort...

Thirty years after women became 50 percent of the college graduates in the United States, men still hold the vast majority of leadership positions in government and industry. This means that women's voices are still not heard equally in the decisions that most affect our lives. In Lean In, Sheryl Sandberg examines why women's progress in achieving leadership roles has stalled, explains the root causes, and offers compelling, commonsense solutions that can empower women to achieve their full potential. Sandberg is the chief operating officer of Facebook and is ranked on Fortune's list of the 50 Most Powerful Women in Business and as one of Time's 100 Most Influential People in the World. In 2010, she gave an electrifying TEDTalk in which she described how women unintentionally hold themselves back in their careers.

Lean? Six Sigma? or Lean Six Sigma? Which is the right approach for effective continuous improvement? While much has been written on merging Lean and Six Sigma initiatives, this is the first book to detail a logical alternative - a no-nonsense strategy for maintaining the best of both initiatives without diluting either. In Using Lean for Faster Six Sigma Results, Mark Nash, Sheila Poling, and Sophronia Ward lay out the differences between Lean and Six Sigma, define the distinct power and focus of each, and detail why and how to use them together in a synchronized and complementary way. While Lean focuses on the elimination of waste, Six Sigma addresses variability and reliability. Organizations that initiate Lean early in their continuous improvement efforts create culture change, immediate results, and streamlined processes, paving the way for faster and more effective Six Sigma results. This practical, easy read shows how to choose the right projects, approach, people, and toolset to achieve bottom-line results faster. Readers will benefit from the authors' years of experience implementing Lean with Six Sigma, through detailed case studies from both manufacturing and service companies. If you are struggling with the dilemma of how to integrate Lean and Six Sigma, or deciding which approach to use, read this practical, down-to-earth book to inspire and guide your strategy.
