“Essentially we want to provide the best experience we can for students, we want to provide great service as efficiently as we can,” Woodruff said. “So, [LEAN is] looking at ways to reduce waste, to find smarter ways of doing business.”

In providing the most efficient service, Woodruff said LEAN will simplify the work of staff.

“The goal ultimately is that we make the job easier so that it can be done well, more efficiently, allowing people really to be more productive,” Woodruff said.

Moloney thanked the custodial staff, and praised them for their hard work and patience.

“I can’t give enough praise to the frontline people who are out there doing it,” Moloney said. “I’m sure that they’re frustrated at times, with how things used to be, and I wish things were like that, but they have high standards and they maintain good quality.”
