For those of you who can't access Amazon, here is Steve's review:
5.0 out of 5 stars Profound/ Simple to follow/ Non judgmental/ Rapid positive results, January 8, 2016
This review is from: Focus and Leverage: The Critical Methodology for Theory of Constraints, Lean, and Six Sigma (TLS) (Paperback)      
Profound in many ways!
Bob and Bruce have written "Focus and Leverage..." a sequel to "Epiphanized", Second Edition.
If you haven't already purchased each book, I urge you to do so!

Although it is written in novel format, the storyline(s) involve two completely different industries. The processes nevertheless are very similar.
The ID/IO Simplified Strategy presented is a step-by-step-guide help anyone facilitate a team of subject matter experts (the people performing the work). They can be found in any company to provide the actions necessary to accomplish the goal or objective. After all, who would know better?
The ID/IO Simplified strategy is so effective that I hope it becomes a primary tool to assist any organization to make more money.
Did I mention the tool will enable most companies to achieve measurable results in less than 60 days? I can't wait to implement the tool! If I need help, I can just refer to the Index. (It may be easier the dog-earring the pages- as I already have done.)
Did I mention the price/benefit ratio? You should be able to use the tools presented and earn 1000 times the price of the book. (That's not a typo, and may be a bit understated)
Bob and Bruce are masters at utilizing the Socratic Method- asking people what they think. Therefore, the people 'own' the solution to the interferences.
The authors transcend the need to have to deal with negative resistance to change.
They are passionate to assist everyone to improve, as "Connor thought to himself that helping the hospital improve was very rewarding, because at the end of day, it helped society improve and when society improves, it helps everyone improve."
I apologize for this review being late, I had to devour the content for the second time.
Many thanks from Bruce and I to Steve for his wonderful review!
