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.

What's New

What our customers are saying

Amy Maltagliati of Granite State facilitated a modified Lean session.

It was awesome! Folks from across the campus with any recruitment responsibility joined to discuss the current state and future state. Good things will come from this early conversation and we are eager to put new processes in place to help make our goal of more effective recruiting a reality.

Granite State continues to benefit from your tremendous foundation. Thank you, again!

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?”
