Lean Technologies In The Management Of Russian Universities


Russian universities are adopting lean tools to improve operational efficiency. The purpose of the study is to determine the features and trends in the use of lean technologies at universities in Russia. The research method is a qualitative analysis of documents and materials from universities that are members of the Association of Lean Universities. The study found that the following tools are usually used by universities: mapping, Continuous Flow, Gemba, Kaizen, Visual Factory and standardized work, which are objectively necessary at the initial stage. In the future, it is advisable to use tools such as Poka-Yoke, Bottleneck analysis and Hoshin Kanri. In the period 2018-2020, lean technologies were introduced mainly in auxiliary operations (work with personnel, paperwork, activities of admissions committees). The main direction in the development of lean universities should be the introduction of lean instruments into the main activities, the standardization of the activities of personnel and workplaces.
