    Are your company's back office business process Lean? Okay, I can almost see the grimace or hear the slight chuckle from some of you, but as our industry looks to increase efficiencies across entire organizations, I wonder how many companies look at bottlenecks and waste in administrative processes.

    Not to pick on human resources or billing, but has it ever been more difficult to hire a talented person or has it taken longer to invoice a customer that it should? How many times has an aircraft, component or engine left a maintenance facility without an invoice?

    Bill Peterson, a faculty member at the University of Tennessee's Center for Executive Education, is an expert in this subject and he wrote a guest editorial in Overhaul & Maintenance's October issue. I urge you to take a few minutes and read his practical advice.
