About this book

This book deepens the understanding of cultural conditions for implementing organizational and process changes in higher education institutions. Developing the humanistic and critical trend in Lean management research, it aims to define the notion and maturity of a Lean culture in higher education institutions as well as to determine its key dimensions and descriptions in the light of adopted ontological and epistemological assumptions. This book defines the notion of Lean Culture, proposes a model to assess its maturity, determines conditions for its implementation, and presents the tools of the Lean management model in a university. It supplements the issues related to the implementation of the Lean concept by adopting a humanistic approach.
