I’ll be teaching half of the day – material based on “Healthcare Kaizen” but generalized a bit for audiences including healthcare, government, software, and retail. I’m also doing a half-day session in Dallas / Fort Worth on June 25.

With high degrees of variation and reliance on problem-solving and creativity, “knowledge work” is fraught with uncertainty. Whether you’re in health care, law, engineering, software, accounting, or administration, finding processes that tame uncertainty, help you complete what you’ve started, alleviate frustration, and surface areas in your work that could benefit from improvement seems like a tall order. Join Shingo Research and Professional Publication Award Winners Mark Graban, Tonianne DeMaria Barry, and Jim Benson for a one-day introduction to Lean for Knowledge Work and learn simple, effective practices that will help you:

  • Estimate work;

  • Surface and address areas that provide no value;

  • Understand the nature of your interruptions;

  • Communicate workload to others;

  • Effectively collaborate;

  • Better manage work-in-progress;

  • Get more done by doing less at a time; and

  • Continuously improve your work, working relationships, job satisfaction, and stress level.
