In April 2013, I lectured at the FGCU Lutgert School of Business in Dr. Rajesh Srivastava Operations Management Class. The lectures addressed the Principles of Lean and enabled me to integrate my hands-on experiences with the overall concepts. The classes were lively and interactive, and the Q&A covered a range of topics building on my Smart Management Lessons on Lean. Thank you again to the Dean, Dr. Hudson Rogers, Dr. Srivastava and the wonderful FGCU students!
As an Executive-In-Residence at the CMU Tepper School of Business, I served as a guest lecturer for several professors including Dr. Sunder Kekre (Operations Management), Dr. Milton Cofield (International Management), Dr. Peter Boatwright (Marketing), Dr. Arthur Boni (Entrepreneurship) and Laurens Debo now at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business (Manufacturing Strategy). Thank you to Dean Robert Dammon, Ken Dunn, Ilker Baybars (Deputy Dean Emeritus) and the wonderful Tepper students!
Over many years, I collaborated with Dr. Bopaya Bidanda (The Chairman of the Industrial Engineering Department at The Swanson School of Engineering) to integrate a class lecture with a factory tour. We were able to show the students many of the best-in-class practices that we had integrated into our operations, including lean principles, six sigma and TQM. After the tour, we discussed how we were able to successfully transform our company. Thank you to Dr. Bidanda and the enthusiastic Pitt students!
