CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR OCT 2016 YB CLASS
UNH Focusing on the Future
No matter how big or how small your idea is, everyone has a vested interest in the success of our departments, colleges, and system-wide organizations. The Project Management Office (PMO) process improvement team can help you bring your ideas forward,assist in analyzing current business processes, and identify areas where improvements will yield cost and/or time savings. Lean at UNH is about improving our processes to better serve our students, inspire and facilitate employee innovation on how best to add value to the benefit of the university community.
Our services include but are not limited to:
Facilitation for Current State and Future State process mapping sessions
Consultation to identify and define work processes needing improvement
Identification and evaluation of areas where measurable cost and/or time savings can be achieved
Assistance in the development and monitoring of change/action plans
Training in the process improvement/continuous process improvement/LEAN methodology
Our strategy is to partner closely with any group requesting our services. We understand your concerns about not knowing where to start, that there is just not enough time in the workday to take on a change, or recognizing that the benefit may not outweigh the investment; however, active participation, especially by those who do the work, is critical in helping us focus on activities that result in measurable, improved work processes that are of value to you.
I attended the Yellow Belt training as “fresh eyes” on a project that was outside of my field. This was a really valuable experience because I was able to see the work from a fresh perspective, offering simple solutions that can be easily overlooked by those close to the work. Lean training is a great way to learn the principles of Lean Management while actually making process improvement. I highly recommend it for anyone who’s ever thought “Isn’t there a better way we can be doing this?”

Thank you so much for bringing these concepts to UNH and for allowing us to work through realistic and department-focused ideas and situations, they really made the LEAN concepts and processes come to life and apply in a real-time fashion. Your insights and professional assistance and sharing of vast knowledge, while allowing us to figure out things on our own, was a huge benefit to our project success. LEAN concepts and thought processes will be with me in all areas in my life – they feed a need to be organized and efficient, in my daily tasks at work and at home.
