Lean in Higher Ed

 Why? How?

Frustrated employees, inefficient processes, unknown processes, and external demands are a few of the reasons to consider use of LEAN in Higher Education.  

Improving processes with teams built with the knowledge of the frontline employee and supervisors of a process results in root causes addressed, buy-in to the new way of doing things, and development of strong collaboration.

Contract with Kusler to provide training, process facilitation, and/or coaching using LEAN Principles and other process improvement tools.
