Lean It Out: How Lean Practitioners are Leveraging the Power of Process Improvement

March 21, 2017

by UNH IT Staff

Lean at UNH is about improving processes to better serve UNH students, and to inspire and facilitate employee innovation on how best to add value while stretching UNH dollars to the benefit of the university community. Lean is fostered and curated by the UNH IT Project Management Office (PMO), who train UNH on the value of Lean and also work with UNH departments to ensure its influence is properly leveraged.

The PMO has trained nearly 400 UNH employees on Lean. The Lean lens was applied to 20 projects at these training sessions, with another 19 projects run by departments with Lean facilitators. These projects either directly impacted students or helped streamline internal processes.

UNH Signals: IT News recently sat down with Lean practitioners from UNH and Granite State College, all of whom attended Lean training, and have leveraged its power into both their daily work and personal lives.
