Book Lovers Day – Our Recommendations

Celebrating Book Lovers Day 2022 – Our Recommendations 

The 9th August 2022 marks International Book Lovers Day – an annual event celebrating the joy of reading.

This year, our team came together to give their recommendations on books that have guided, inspired and motivated them through business and their careers to date. We asked each of the team to tell us why they selected the book they did. We’ve included the details below and hope that they encourage and delight you as much as they have our team.

This book provides the 21 most effective methods for conquering procrastination and accomplishing more. Amir from our team selected this as he found the book really beneficial in learning how to get granularity with large projects and how to break large projects into smaller tasks. This book outlines the basics of a to-do-list.
Recommended by Maria, this book provides critical insights and valuable methods to make any Lean transformation an ongoing success. The book covers in good detail the key areas in Lean: Problem solving, Visual Management and Daily Accountability. An easy read with a good balance of theory and practice.
In this book, recommended by Chris, Atul explains how checklists actually work with striking and immediate improvements. He follows the checklist revolution into fields well beyond medicine, from disaster response to investment banking, skyscraper construction, and businesses of all kinds. The books offers a fascinating insight to human error and some of the tools and techniques that can help to reduce the incidence rate.
This book, recommended by Christy, is a process improvement methodology that emphasizes the importance of identifying the “system constraint” or bottleneck. The book provides valuable insights and is an easy read.
