Notice my surprise when I went to TTU’s website today and found this link: http://today.ttu.edu/2009/08/comic-relief-from-textbooks/.
It appears that Jeremy Short, the Jerry S. Rawls Professor of Management in the Rawls College of Business, has published the first-ever graphic novel textbook on management, which is just out this summer. The first chapter of “Atlas Black: Managing to Succeed” can be viewed online.
And this isn’t the first time Short has done something like this; Short also boasts the first-ever case study for Harvard Business School’s case collection in graphic novel format, co-written with Robert Austin. The case, which describes an information technology security crisis, and raises issues of risk management, preparation for crises, management of crises, computer security and public disclosure of security risks, is available at hbsp.harvard.edu.
All I can say is VERY COOL. Needless to say, this makes my mind spin with the possibilities. It seems no form is exempt from being used as a tool to educate. I think that rocks.
