    In a University with 29,000 students, 3500 staff, six colleges, 36 schools, eight major support units, a budget of more than €400m, no ‘burning platform’ but the objective of ensuing the University is the best it can be, where do you begin with your Lean Six Sigma process enhancement and culture change programme?
