To lean or not to lean

Today I have decided the elective courses for my second year at MIP MBA. It wasn’t an easy decision, but in the end I decided to ditch the hard disciplines and focus on improving my soft skills. I picked Lean manufacturing and services and Change management and knowledge management. I was undecided wether to go for Mergers and acquisitions or Supply Chian Management Advanced but reading this and this made me decide to concentrate on organization and strategy.

I have a little knowledge of the concepts behind lean manufacturing applied to services and I really want to know more about it. The Lean group of MIP has developed experience on lean services, especially health management (in Italian), a field that has vast space for IT penetration and Free Software, too. It seems the ideal development for me πŸ™‚
