    I’m not sure I agree with the implication that anyone who doesn’t use lean is a “doofus”, but other than that this is an interesting way to convey Lean ideas.

    The name “Doofus” is meant in good fun. The original cartoon, again, was “Goofus and Gallant” so Doofus rhymes, that’s all…

    Don’t take it too seriously…

    Great cartoon. If I could get my manager featured in the Doofus cartoon, that would be excellent.
