Lean Kaizen in Education
LEAN / KAIZEN has grown from manufacturing roots to service industry and public sector applications. Lean thinking began with the Toyota Production System which transformed car manufacturing in post-war Japan, but is now being used by companies and organizations around the world, in the public and private sectors, to improve Customer service, Quality and efficiency, Staff morale, Internal communication and cooperation.
LEAN / KAIZEN has proven its worth in streamlining processes and improving efficiency within office administration and services. Many universities around the world are now implementing large-scale change programmes on LEAN / KAIZEN aimed at reviewing their administrative services and developing a culture of continuous improvement.
LEAN UNIVERSITY PROGRAM provides a way of responding to the growing need to deliver more while consuming less using LEAN / KAIZEN principles. It uses cultural change to deliver dramatically improved service and decreased costs. By involving people at the right level it develops a sense of ownership for work. It also develops Team work within departments, making the University leaner, smaller, and increasing morale.
Some of the results of Implementing LEAN University Program are; Reduced Costs, Reduce Process Times, Better service to Students, Simpler administration for Academics, More time for staff to spend doing the important stuff.
