BLEU Associates

Buckingham Lean Enterprise Unit (BLEU) has a number of Associates who are amongst the leading authorities in the world in their respective areas.

Our associates visit the university, deliver short courses, assist our Master’s students, discuss, and share material. It all adds to the Buckingham Lean experience!

In some cases our Associates provide links to their own materials. Such materials are fully endorsed by BLEU but are written by the Associates themselves.
