Abstract

This paper contextualises the lean implementation methodology used by the Lean Enterprise Research Centre (LERC) to catalyse and embed lean practices within a client University by briefly discussing a history of process improvement activities within academic institutions (notably within the U.S.A.) and stressing the importance of pursuing a lean value system (Hines, Holweg et al. 2004) as the ideal “Lean University” future state. This methodology is then illustrated by describing two early projects respectively at a strategic and operational level within the University.
