Lean Education Academic Network Announced
The Lean Enterprise Institute has announced a lean academic network for professors and universities that are teaching lean principles. There is certainly room to teach lean princples within engineering disciplines (particular Industrial Engineering and Mechanical Engineering) and also in business school. I know most of my business school classmates view the world as finance people or marketing people. Operations was something you took one required course in and maybe learned “Toyota is good” (unless you were part of the manufacturing-specific program).
Good luck with the “LEAN” network. It's a noble purpose and I hope it does well.
The full press release can be read at the LEI website, but it requires a free registration.
