“How do we do more with less? Simple question, and one that explains succinctly the mindset of many Lean practitioners. However, Erica Deuso looks at Lean a little differently. After graduating from Drexel University with her BS in Biology and MBA in Pharmaceutical management, and gathering 12 years of bench R&D experience, she started her Lean journey in the Pharmaceutical industry. She has worked in early research, late development, regulatory affairs, operations, clinical, finance, and now finds herself immersed in Business Process Management. Using her scientific background, Ms. Deuso approaches Lean from a heuristic point of view; what can she learn about the problems we face to apply the proper countermeasures? It’s only once we know our problems completely that we can ever hope to solve them.”
