This half-day session, aimed at front-line staff (both academic and administrative), introduces you to the origins and history of Lean; the Lean Fundamentals, Principles, and wastes; and the St Andrews Process Improvement Model. It is the same content as offered in our Introduction to Lean for Senior Managers, although in slightly less detail and with an emphasis on how the tools and techniques can be applied in your day-to-day work.

Simulations and games play a large part in this session, and it is expected that, on completion, staff will be able to return to the day job and begin applying Lean immediately.

The material covered in this session also prepares staff to take part in a Rapid Improvement Event, and so can shorten the time required for project preparation if delivered as part of a wider institutional/organisational Lean capability-building programme.
