Lean skills in college


Oakland University, in partnership with other schools, is doing some research on what skills and knowledge is expected and desired from college graduates. Here is a link to the survey and below is an explanation from them.

“The purpose of this survey is to assess the expectations of industry from college graduates trained in lean. We would like to better understand the lean knowledge, skills and expertise graduating college students should possess in order to offer instant value-adding capabilities for employers without requiring remedial training after employment. This information will enable educators to design more appropriate and applicable curricula. The survey should not take more than 10-15 minutes.”
