Lean Strategies for Education: Overcoming the Waste Factor
Maguad, Ben A.
Education, v128 n2 p248-255 Dec 2007
Although teaching and learning are considered critical activities in schools, they are largely driven by financial realities. Thus, schools must undertake the delicate task of balancing anticipated revenue sources with planned expenditures. In the wake of static or declining revenues, schools are compelled to cut costs. A less painful way to do this would be to improve operational efficiency by eliminating waste using lean techniques. The individual and organizational learning that takes place is then disseminated throughout the organization. (Contains 1 figure.)
