Podcast #182 – Michael Grogan & Dr. Brenda Dmallo, Lean Healthcare in Africa

MP3 File (run time 36:24)

michael and dr brenda tanzania lean 150x150 Podcast #182   Michael Grogan & Dr. Brenda Dmallo, Lean Healthcare in Africa leanJoining me for episode #182 are Michael Grogan and Dr. Brenda  Dmello, joining me via Skype from Tanzania where they are working together to use Lean to improve health care at the  Comprehensive Community Based Rehabilitation in  Tanzania  (CCBRT). Michael is Irish born and left his career in the United States to work in Africa (which you can read about in his guest post that I published earlier this month).

In the episode, we talk about their mission to reduce maternal death rates and “needless suffering” by creating “engaging, problem solving managers” as “everything rises and falls with leadership.” They are developing leaders who can “stop blaming” and treat people with respect, eliminating the “culture of fear” that we see in far too many organizations around the world. Dr. Brenda says, “I don’t think it’s ethical to allow change to happen so slowly” and that “clinical skills alone” won’t solve healthcare’s problems.

    Thanks for sharing Michael’s impact on Dr. Brenda’s actions, doing and thinking. Michael recognizes his success will be demonstrated when he is part of the background.
