Save the date: Lean Fair 2019 is Jan. 16

lean-fair-save-dateMiami employees are invited to attend the LEAN Fair on Wednesday, Jan. 16, at the Armstrong Student Center. 

The fair’s theme is “Ahead of the Curve,” and it will feature interactive learning, employee enrichment opportunities, peer-to-peer discussions, and hands-on simulations through 12 breakout sessions.

There will also be more than 20 different interactive learning stations focusing on topics that include drones, MUPD safety and Lean educational and interactive games.

President Gregory Crawford, Provost Phyllis Callahan and David Creamer, senior vice president of finance and business services, will deliver opening addresses.

The event, now in its fifth year, was created to provide information about Lean and to recognize the accomplishments of the employees engaged in Lean projects. Employees are able to take away valuable ideas and practices to use in their daily work lives.

Last year, about 850 representatives from around the university participated.
