Lean Management Tours
The VOE-Network sponsors a Lean Management Tour excursion during the AALAS National Meeting. We visit diverse organizations to learn how they have implemented lean techniques to improve operations, customer service, engage employees and solve problems.
Members of the VOE-Network also open their doors to others to exchange ideas on improving vivarium operations. Visit the "Members" page and contact a fellow member to see their facility, exchange ideas how they solved a particular problem or just to say "how are you doing?"
Lean Benchmarking Tours are offered at Mass General Hospital in Boston on a request basis using the link below.
VOE-Network Collaboration & Benchmarking Tour
VOE-Network members from University of Houston, Memorial University (Canada) and Massachusetts General Hospital collaborated to discuss the advantages and various approaches to applying Lean Management to vivarium operations. With decades of experience, VOE-Network members have assisted biomedical research organizations around the world. We urge members to collaborate to steal and learn from each other.
Have you ever wondered what Lean management looks like in a vivarium? Contact us if you need help, want to arrange a director-to-director discussion, or better understand how we can help you improve your operational performance.
