Expand and reinforce your knowledge of continuous improvement and lean principles by checking out the engaging work of experts in the field. These are great topics to share and discuss with leaders and team members.
Way of Thinking:
Train employees to make better decisions, be more productive, continually identify non-value-add activities or inefficiencies, and use problem-solving tools to remove inefficiencies from their processes.
Way of Behaving:
Engaging employees and departments by respecting each other, having a willingness and ability to collaborate to solve problems, actively soliciting ideas for improvement, encouraging teamwork, and helping each other be their best.
Set of Tools:
Provide the support structure and methods by which process improvement can happen. Used correctly, the tools help identify underlying problems and their causes which can then be addressed vs. guessing at solutions in the absence of Lean Higher Education.
