Lean Ways of Working

Get involved and learn a successful approach to business transformation.

You may have heard about Lean, a philosophy practised by some of the biggest names in business, but you might not have seen it applied in a Higher Education environment. As part of ongoing improvements to how the SES works, Lean Ways of Working will be rolled out to help us achieve more to improve the student experience.  The rollout is being led by the Process Improvement Team, headed up by Paula Dunn.  The team is currently assigned to the Student Lifecycle Programme (SLP). 

To see how the roll out will happen, please download the Lean Competency Framework document
