    Has any one utilized LEAN processes/tools to develop a recruiting strategy?  Not for the processing of applicant data, scheduling interviews, etc., but for developing a strategy to get people interested in the job and applying?  Anyone see merit in the idea?

    SH,
    Lean is good for getting waste out of a process and reducing cycle time (among other things) — does your recruiting strategy suffer from waste and / or long cycle times?

    The problem is that recruiting is forced to move in another direction, which hasn’t been sufficiently prepared for; there is no real current strategy.  The IE in me is trying to use a structured approach to developing a new strategy, and LEAN/SS is a big push now, vs jsut brainstorming and reverse eng.  If some tools can be interpolated to the cause in an attempt to produce a quality strategy w/out deteriorating thier application, cool.  I’ve started drafting a SIPOC, looking at the VSM, flowcharting, etc. 
    Wanted to know if anyone has utilized LEAN/SS tools on something similar?  Otherwise, may be a dead end road I’m paving here…

    Start off with a current state VSM, define what is important for the future state, map the future state, identify the gaps & implement.
    Point is don’t make it any harder than what it needs to be.  I have found it almost impossible to do any LEAN type of product or new process development if it is the flavor of the month.
