Leaders Embrace Lean: In Their Own Words
"Having my team engage in applying LEAN methodology to long-standing processes has allowed us to achieve several goals. First, we now have a complete, end-to-end process map of the current state. The team has identified barriers and unnecessarily complex or redundant processing and the team has come up with suggestions for change to address them. They are now personally invested in making changes that I've been trying to inch along for years. In fact, I think that keeping "the boss" OUT of the process was critical, as it provided them with the space to explore new territory without fear of "getting it wrong" or "looking stupid" in front of leadership. I'm excited about seeing the project plan transformed into reality."
"I'm a longtime supporter of Lean and building the Lean culture with my team. It truly helps our staff think outside of the box and look at processes at a much higher level. I believe Dagmar and Tom do a great job pushing everyone to think bigger. Also, having the opportunity to work with peers from other institutions and hearing their perspectives adds value."
