Novel approach to learning: Teaching business with fiction
BostonHerald.com – Business Coverage:
An article about the new business novel about Lean.
“But don't expect to see “The Gold Mine” on the bestseller list. The purpose of the novel is to educate readers about the benefits of “lean” production – a term describing a way of simplifying business processes so that less waste is created.
“Strip out the educational intent and I will be able to find you a better novel,” Womack said. “
This book is on my “to read” list — what Womack says is true, usually the “story” of books like The Goal and Andy & Me is pretty tacked on (and always about a plant manager whose marriage is in jeopardy).
