Full Story


Edinburgh Napier’s Business Improvement journey comes under the spotlight in a new book which examines best practice in Higher Education.
Edited by Business Improvement Consultant Steve Yorkstone, the volume that brings together improvement methodologies in Higher Education, focusing on ‘lean’ improvement.
“Global Lean for Higher Education: A Themed Anthology of Case Studies, Approaches, and Tools” brings together more than 30 authors from around the world, representing universities both research intensive and applied, from 50 to 800 years old.
With themes of Starting out, People, Projects, Technology, Sustaining Lean and Culture, it’s written for people looking to improve the way universities work, with Edinburgh Napier taking a lead role in building an efficient and effective sector.
Steve said "Editing this book has been almost a two year journey, and it's great to see how many people in universities are helping make things better for their students, colleagues, and communities. It's taught me that making connections with other people and bringing stories together can have a real impact."
Edinburgh Napier’s role in building an efficient and effective sector is part of the discussion, with Steve co-authoring a chapter with Brent Hurley of the Strategy Hub about our own experiences.
The booked is published today by Routledge and you can buy it here.
