Free Webinar: Lean for Higher Education
September 26, 2012
Higher education represents an enormous opportunity for the application of Lean management, yet the focus thus far has been almost entirely on administrative processes. Bob Emiliani will present how Lean principles and practices apply to academic processes to improve individual courses, as well as how to use kaizen to improve entire degree programs. He will provide highlights of his own pioneering Lean experiences in higher education, including faculty and staff reaction, student feedback, and lessons learned. It will also include tips for engaging university employees in efforts to improve academic processes in response to the major changes that are happening today.
