I’m paraphrasing, but Clare asks why we aren’t hearing more about the use of Toyota and Lean methods for improving hospitals? She supposes that there is less to be gained by politicians from pointing out solutions that are working instead of going on and on about problems that, of course, require government solutions.
Clare also gives credit, as usual, to Dr. Deming for his role in influencing Toyota and their production system and philosophy.
