Lean HE Europe
Welcome to Lean HE Europe
Our community welcomes lean and continuous improvement practitioners employed in higher education / university sector across Europe.
As a European community of practice we aim to promote continuous improvement philosophies in higher education through networking, sharing best practice and supporting our networks conference series.
Our goals are to:
Promote Lean and improvement activities and their impact across the European Continental Division, highlighting good practice and collaboration
Build the network through identification and engagement of other European countries and universities not currently involved in Lean HE
Support local networks by providing guidance and support to help build and expand existing networks within the division.
Lean in HE Europe is governed by a steering committee comprising a Chair, Deputy Chair and the leads of our multiple regional and national groups.
Each regional / national group seeks to build communities aligned to the principles of the overarching global network, providing opportunities to learn, share and develop continuous improvement capabilities
