eBook published on A3 Problem Solving
We are still very proud of our book, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Lean, that has done very well over the past few years. The book publishing world is changing, very rapidly. I’ve had one of the big publishers ask me about doing another book. I’m not ready for that yet. But it also begs the question: is that where I should be publishing?
And so we come to my latest project: A3 Problem Solving: Applying Lean Thinking.
It’s my attempt to do two things: (1) provide some useful content to people organized in a way that I hope will help them with their development and application of lean, and (2) experiment and learn more about what digital-only publishing looks like.
I’ve published this on Leanpub.com. It’s a neat platform and you can buy the book and download it to your Kindle, to iBooks, Nook, or just as a PDF. But, it’s an ebook, meaning this is not a full-length book just in digital form. It’s shorter than that (65 pages counting the stuff at the beginning and end to be specific).
As a part of the experiment, you set the price! Yes, this is a great feature of Leanpub. I can set a minimum and a suggested, and you set the range based on your perceived value and your attitude and your situation. Broke college student? Pay the minimum – less than a latte. Going to make the most of it? Pay the suggested price. It’s entirely up to you.
I request to things of you.
1. Buy it. Read it. Apply it. (sure, it’s that simple, right?)
2. Please give me feedback. It doesn’t matter if it’s about the buying experience, or the content, or my hairstyle (trust me, I’ve heard it all). I really want to use this as an experiment, and that won’t work without your feedback.
