The Lean Approach To - But I REALLY, REALLY Want a Kitten!

Robert Martichenko’s daughter Abbey, the protagonist of our popular book Everything I Know about Lean I Learned in the First Grade, celebrates her 12th birthday today. Abbey desperately wanted a kitten for her birthday present. Take a look at her request to her parents: an A3 argument in PowerPoint form below. What do you think? Is her proposal a lean one?  

Happy birthday Abbey! And good luck with the kitten!
