I've often blogged about Dilbert and “dilbert lean” is a fairly common search term, so I thought I'd do my best to compile all of the Lean or Six Sigma related strips that I could find into a single post, providing links to them.
Previously, I had embedded strips (since the Dilbert website gave you code that allowed me to do that). A few years back, I got a really nicely-worded email from somebody at the company that distributes Dilbert. They asked me to not embed the strips and to, instead, link to the cartoons. I complied with their request and, to my surprise, they mailed me a really nice Dilbert coffee-table book.
