Implementing, Measuring and Sustaining Change



Date: 1-3rd November 2017
Location: Sydney, Australia


Following two years of planning, Macquarie University, in partnership with Lean HE, is proud to host the inaugural Australasian Lean HE Conference in 2017. We look forward to meeting you in Sydney Australia.

Conference delegates will have the chance to:
  • Network with practitioners from across the globe who have developed Lean initiatives
  • Share knowledge and form collaborative partnerships
  • Find out how universities and colleges are engaging employees and achieving measurable and cultural changes
  • Understand how Lean has been implemented, what buy in, senior leadership and support was required for implementation, and what lessons were learned
  • Understand how to measure, demonstrate and report benefits following implementation of new process improvements, to ensure continuous improvement
  • Learn how Lean is used by industry and how these practices can be adapted to HE
  • Engage in interactive workshops, panels and sessions to find answers to questions and challenges.
Keynote speakers, global industry experts and educational leaders presenting at the conference will be announced shortly.  The conference will host speakers from Australia, New Zealand,  England, Scotland, Norway, Netherlands, USA and Canada. It will be a great opportunity to network with Lean Leaders from across the globe.

The annual international conference is awarded by the Steering Group to a conference host that best meets the aims of the Lean HE. In exchange, the steering group provides guidance based on feedback from previous events and their shared expertise, to help support a conference programme that is increasingly relevant to the needs of lean practitioners in HE today, and offers the most value we can.
