Some Upcoming Lean Events – See You There?

I wanted to share a few upcoming Lean events that I’ll be attending. You can read more updates via the archive of my latest Lean Hospitals email newsletter. Hopefully, we can meet up, talk Lean, and even have a drink together, as, um, pictured at left.

First off, I’ll be at the Michigan Lean Consortium annual conference in Traverse City this week, so I know I’ll see a few of you there. And there are other events…

Upcoming North Texas Events:

September 23, Grapevine, TX
I’ll be a keynote speaker at this event, talking about Lean mindsets and mental models for healthcare.

October 24, Plano, TX
I will be giving a new talk on  healthcare kaizen  as part of  an outstanding daylong program.

October 24-28, Dallas TX
I will be volunteering and attending at this outstanding event, one that has more healthcare content and attendees each year.

Utah State University:

One event I can’t attend this year, unfortunately, is this:

37th Annual Operational Excellence Conference

Partners in Business  is a student-run conference at Utah State University. I was a speaker a few years back and really enjoyed the whole event (Dr. John Toussaint  was also a speaker that year).This year’s event, which I unfortunately can’t attend, is September 28-29 in Logan, Utah. I’m happy to be a promotional partner and to share this high-quality event with you.Click here to learn more or to register.

Society for Health Systems 2012

I’m also hoping to be presenting at the 2012 Society for Health Systems conference, February 18 to 21 in Las Vegas. If you want to submit an abstract to give a talk or a workshop, there’s still some time to do that (through August 19).
