Today, I’d like to share a podcast where the ScrumCast hosts, Derek Neighbors and Clayton Lengel-Zigich, interviewed me about Lean in healthcare. Their audience is primarily IT and software people working with Lean-related methodologies called agile, scrum, “Lean Startups,” etc.
They asked great questions and this discussion, about 16 minutes, might serve as a good introduction to those who are curious about Lean in healthcare.
In the podcast, we discussed:
- Agile outside of software
- Lean in healthcare
- Lean as management principles
- Lean is not cost cutting
- Risk and quality in Lean
- Bad processes and lean improvements
- Improving flow
Thanks to Derek and Clayton for having me on the show! It’s great to collaborate and cross-pollinate ideas across industries.
