The study aimed at identifying the extent of the technical colleges' commitment to the application of the lean management. The analytical descriptive method was used through a questionnaire randomly distributed to 289 of 1168 employees of the technical colleges in the Gaza Strip with return ratio of (79.2%) out of the sample study. The results of the study showed that the technical colleges achieved a high level of lean management with a relative weight of 76.69%. The results of the study showed that there is a high level of flexible management (loss reduction, cost reduction, service improvement, customer satisfaction, maximization of competitiveness and profitability) in technical colleges in Gaza Strip. The field of waste reduction came first and with a relative weight of 79.56% In the second place came the field (responding to customer requirements) and a relative weight (79.14%), in the third place came the field (cost reduction) and a relative weight (75.68%), in the fourth place came the field (maximizing competitiveness and profitability) and relative weight (74.59%), in the fifth and final place came the field of (service improvement) and relative weight (74.52%). The results confirmed the existence of statistically significant differences in the application of the flexible management dimensions between technical colleges. The results showed that there were no differences in the application of the lean management according to the levels of experience except after the reduction of costs, where there were differences from the point of view of those with low experience. The researchers suggested a number of recommendations, the most important of which is the need to increase the attention to the dimensions of achieving the lean management because of their role in the development and sustainability of technical education departments by enhancing and improving the operations in the technical colleges, especially in the difficult conditions experienced by Gaza Strip and the scarcity of resources. And the importance of urging decision makers in technical colleges to develop efficient management mechanisms and applications in terms of reducing waste, reducing costs, improving service, responding to customer requirements, and maximizing competitiveness and profitability, commensurate with the capabilities of these colleges.
