Excellence in Action resulting from students optimizing brain functioning


Linlin says that Lean accounting enables better communication and employee engagement, and greatly enhances leadership.

Maharishi University of Management (MUM) PhD student Ye Shi (Linlin) was recently selected to receive the 2013 Lean Enterprise Institute's Annual Lean Accounting Student Award.

The award was presented to Linlin at the 2013 Lean Accounting Summit in Orlando, Florida, this month.

Included in her award was a complimentary registration at the summit and $500 towards her travel expenses. The Lean Enterprise Institute recognizes students who have been actively engaged in research, education, and the development of lean accounting. Professor Andrew Bargerstock nominated her for this award based on her accomplishments in lean accounting.

Linlin completed her MBA in accounting in 2011 and the Postgraduate Certificate in Lean Accounting in 2012. In September 2013 she began her second year of teaching three of the two-credit courses in the Lean Accounting Certificate program.

In collaboration with Dr. Bargerstock, Linlin has developed case studies to illustrate how to implement kaizen methodologies to improve accounts payable processing. Linlin is currently taking coursework in the PhD program and will begin her dissertation next year.
Dr. Bargerstock received the Excellence in Lean Accounting Professor of the Year Award in 2009.

Linlin was notified of her selection as Lean Accounting Student of the Year by Jim Huntzinger, president and founder of Lean Frontiers, which produces the The Lean Accounting Summit together with the Lean Enterprise Institute.

He is also author of the 2007 book Lean Cost Management: Accounting for Lean by Establishing Flow.

"We are very happy that Linlin's accomplishments are recognized by Jim Huntzinger, who's one of the biggest names in lean accounting and who was the chair of the selection committee," Dr. Bargerstock said.
