10 Sample A3s by 5 contributors
I was honored to have these 5 people contribute A3s for the eBook, Marketing with A3. I had several of my own efforts but felt that I could not offer the variety needed. These contributions are real life examples (names and some data has been changed) that captures the essence of an A3; a small story along the path of continuous improvement. For an A3 example look at this sample A3s.
