I’m still waiting for the lean comic book to arrive after buying it on eBay. The link above is a column written about Hytrol Conveyor Company (more on their lean effort). They created a custom comic book to help explain lean concepts to their employees and suppliers. While some people might find this approach insulting, I can see the value in using different approaches for people with different learning styles. Looking at the content (a few pages that were shown in the eBay auction), the book looks like it makes a serious effort at explaining lean concepts in a way that isn’t “dumbed down”. It just looks approachable, being in comic book form.
I’ll post a full “review” of the book after I get mine, but here are a few pages (click on them for a larger view).
