Podcast #104 is a discussion with Dr. Peter Patterson (@IDrPete), a friend of mine and the Lean Blog the past few years. He wrote a guest post for me back in 2009 (A Breakthrough in Training: Call it “Near-TWI”) and I blogged about our presentation at the 2010 Society for Health Systems conference about Lean and TWI in healthcare.
Here, we chat about his background with Lean in multiple settings, including histopathology.
