“Healthcare Kaizen” Book Release Date Now June 27

After the date had been previously pushed back to July 27, due to some delays on the publisher’s side, I”m happy to announce that my upcoming book (with Joe Swartz) Healthcare Kaizen: Engaging Front-Line Staff in Sustainable Continuous Improvements  has been brought back up to June 27. You can pre-order the paperback today via Amazon, Productivity Press, or BN.com.

We are really excited about the book. It is going to be printed in full color, with over 200 real examples of Kaizen-style improvements from hospitals around the world, most of which having before and after photos.

You can sign up online to receive, via email, a free PDF that contains Chapter 1 of the book along with a summary of the rest of the book’s chapters  – and a discount code for 20% through Productivity Press!

The book is hopefully going to be available at the same time (if not earlier) in Kindle format. Because the book is so graphics and picture-intensive (over 200 examples of Kaizen-style improvements), it will likely published as a Kindle textbook – the same treatment as my friend Naida Grunden’s book Lean-Led Hospital Design. Unlike books that have the text converted for the Kindle format (which often makes graphics hard to read), this approach will basically present the book “as printed,” page for page, like reading a PDF. This format works brilliantly on an iPad, Kindle Fire, PC, or Mac. It just doesn’t work on “e-Ink” Kindle readers. We hope this is OK with most readers.

Joe and I are excited about the upcoming launch. We are honored by the endorsements and reviews we have received so far. We hope you enjoy the book and find it useful.
