    Lean Education Academic Network

    Lean Education Academic Network, is a group of academic and industry people interested in bringing lean content into academic programs. The Leaneduc email list will send you announcements from the network.

    From Exclusive Q&A with Jim Womack, Part 4:

    We recently came across a new industrial engineering text from a major American publisher titled something like "Principles of Lean Engineering" in which the first chapter was about ... Economic Order Quantity! It got Jim so mad that he decided it was time to bring together all of the right-minded engineering faculty along with operations faculty from business schools to create the just-formed Lean Education Academic Network (LEAN). The idea is for right-minded faculty to share all of the existing teaching materials and then devise the kind of textbooks and teaching materials that should have been universally used years ago.
