Sometimes, lean and its components can be a little dry and serious–but that doesn’t mean the folks who use it are.
I recently discovered a website (started by Lean Blog author, Mark Graban) that has funny lean memes, including humorous 5S, Kaizen, 3 Wastes (Muda, Muri, Mura), Six Sigma and PDCA sayings that go with silly, semi-relevant photos.
Some of them are pretty hilarious – using something so technical as “root cause” and coupling it with a funny photo of a small child is kind of great.

the kaizen mindset, basic kaizen concepts including the PDCA cycle, and real-world examples.
