First-person ISE: What is industrial and systems engineering? Students Sara Gamble & Danika Dorris and alumnus Isaac Mitchell share their experiences with University of TN, Knoxville Industrial & Systems Engineering.
The UT Department of Industrial and Information Engineering has worked with several companies and organizations to implement lean practices by applying the right tools for the right processes and developing a sustainable culture. Thanks to this experience, we have developed a five-week summer program for students interested in learning about Lean and gaining experience in the methodology and applications.

Meet Isaac Mitchell, Director, Lean Continuous Improvement, East Tennessee Children’s Hospital. Bachelor of Science, Industrial Engineering, University of Tennessee
Mark' Graban's note: Today's post is a guest post by my friend and colleague Isaac Mitchell. We've crossed paths at conferences, including the annual Society for Health Systems conference, where he shared some of their great work on Kaizen that's being done at East Tennessee Children's Hospital. Hopefully we'll see you there in February with keynote speaker Kim Barnas (hear my podcast with her) and others.
Isaac Mitchell is a loyal Vol and Director of Operations at the medical device manufacturer DeRoyal who understands that if you support your community it will give back to you as well.
