Lean Production Survey

Who I am…

My name is Jonas Wullbrandt, and I am an EMGT graduate student at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology.  Actually, I am working on my master’s thesis, which will be submitted to the Faculty of RHIT in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Science in Engineering Management.

What I need…

Part of this Capstone Project is a survey in which future engineers and managers like you, will be requested to complete a short survey that asks what you learned about Lean Production and Its Methods. The answers will be aggregately analyzed and used in my thesis to give recommendations of how to further increase success in Lean organizations.

This survey is IRB approved, and its completion will only take approximately 3-5 minutes!

What you get…

If you are interested in the results of the survey or the content of my master’s thesis, feel free to contact me at In exchange for taking part in the survey, one participant will earn a $20 Amazon gift card!

Announcing USASBE Launch!

USASBE Launch! ( is an innovative student startup competition designed to provoke and reward undergraduate students from all disciplines who can:

  • deliberately design an impactful idea,
  • identify, test, validate business model hypotheses with customer development tools, and
  • show traction (how well a startup is delivering its business model and how well the target demographic is accepting that business model).

Outcomes of this competition are:

  • students actively engage in entrepreneurship, and improve their chances of success,
  • create a global mentor network to assist student entrepreneur and innovator teams,
  • be a catalyst for economic growth; students create well-vetted innovations and companies for the establishment of going concerns that hire and contribute to society through their innovative product and service commercialization.

There is no required application process, there are no required fees or purchases, there is no required format or procedures.  We will recommend and train students to use specific processes and tools, such as Alex Bruton’s deliberate ideation process, Steve Blank’s customer development process, Alexander Osterwalder’s business model canvas, and Eric Ries’ lean startup methodology.  Students can engage as much or as little as they desire.  

This competition brings together the following organizations to create the most cross-disciplinary and far-reaching student startup competitions:

  • 1,000+ United States Association for Small Business & Entrepreneurship (USASBE) members,
  • Thousands of National Collegiate Inventors & Innovators Alliance (NCIIA) stakeholders,
  • Student membership of 750 Collegiate Entrepreneurship Organization (CEO) chapters,
  • 1,200 National Association for Community College Entrepreneurship (NACCE) members,
  • Thousands of International Council for Small Business (ICSB) member institutions,
  • Hundreds of arts educators from Self-Employment in the Arts (SEA)
