Author Talk

What can international educators learn from health care, manufacturing, and other sectors? Surprisingly, a lot! In Achieving More With Less: Lean Management for the International Student Office, David L. Di Maria shows how tried-and-true lean management strategies and tools adapted from various industries can improve processes in international offices. At a time when most international offices must show greater returns on investment with fewer resources to allocate, this publication provides the tools and knowledge you need to make the most of the assets at your disposal.

In this event, the author will discuss this compelling topic and share highlights from the book.
