    Introduction to Visual Management
    Extremely good introduction to Visual Management with examples of daily lives and nature.
    The videos also show various easy to understand examples which can be applied directly to the workplace.
    For the quiz part, we need to save our answers in order to submit in the end. (It maybe common sense but there should be simple explanation to indicate that)
