Event description

Description

The Process Improvement Team at the University of Leeds would like to invite you to the next Lean HE (UK) North and Midlands network event on the 17 July 2018.

The theme for this session is competencies and we will be exploring the traits, skills, qualifications and experiences of a Lean practitioner within a higher education environment.

This will be an interactive session where we hope to draw on knowledge and expertise from across the sector and we will specifically focus on the following questions:

  • how does a newly trained Lean improver progress in their training and experiences to 'graduate' as a practitioner?

  • What would a development journey for a lean practitioner look like? What are the milestones and how do they know they are on a journey?

  • Is hands on experience enough or is some formal appraisal required?

  • How are individuals identified as a person capable of being a Lean practitioner? We will also explore the range of routes that lead into these roles eg HR, IT, training, HE administration.

We are hoping as many people from across the sector can attend so that we can share ideas and start to build a picture of the various experiences and career pathways we have in the sector. Information from this session will help inform how we develop the Lean HE North and Midlands network, in particular to help shape our seminars going forward and also explore whether we can share training and development opportunities across the sector.

Lunch will be provided and there will also be an opportunity to network, with the seminar starting at 12.45 pm and ending at 3.30 pm. There will be time available at the end of the seminar for further networking (with cake!) from 3.30 pm onwards. Schedule at a glance provided below.
