Continuous Improvement Connection
As summer progresses things get busier and busier with the impending arrival of the students. From vacations to important projects, the to-do lists to be completed within the next couple of weeks are hefty for everyone. Stay organized.
Here in the Office of Continuous Improvement we regularly use Lean tools to keep track of large workloads. From personal kanbans to problem solving matrixes, there are ways to crunch even the most tedious issues. Chip away at it and know what needs to be ahead of time-minimizing waste and laying out your work clearly in front of you is a good way to get started. If you have any other questions, feel free to contact us.
You can find more tools and information at http://www.mtu.edu/improvement or contact us at 7-3180 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
