Higher Education in Alaska is Not Lean

This is a recent quote from a long time higher education leader in Alaska.

“The university is an economic engine for Alaska. Our research is conducted across the state, providing jobs, vital insights and information needed by industries.”

My question is—why hasn’t the University discovered the power of Lean Thinking and championed its adoption by state and local government, Alaska business and education, including itself?
