One place Intro to Lean in HE for IS Staff Jan 20
Free + £0.00 fees

A short training session to explore what lean is, how this plays out in our sector, and what that means for us in Information Services.

Key takeaways:

  • What lean thinking is historically, theoretically, and currently in the HE sector
  • Some core lean principles and some lean techniques
  • An experience of applying lean improvement to a simple simulation exercise
  • Actions to explore applying lean in your work

The time will begin with a check in, where delegates will identify their experience with lean goals for the afternoon.

We will then discuss lean in theory and in practice, with the option of a simulation exercise depending on attendee requirements.

There will be the opportunity to hear how lean is being applied in other HEIs, and finally a discussion around how lean can be used in the attendee’s work.
