    Your definition of Lean caught my eye: “Lean is a tool set, a management system, and a philosophy that can change the way hospitals are organized and managed.”

    I study Lean, think about Lean, practice Lean, and write about Lean. But I feel awkward when someone asks “What do you do?” or “What is Lean?” and sense a one sentence response is appropriate.

    My common response for the Lean question: Lean arguably the best approach we know about for improving how an organization delivers value to its customers.

    I figure if they’re interested in understanding what this means, they’ll start a conversation. Otherwise the conversation moves on. Still, I feel a bit academic sounding with this reply.

    So what is your favorite one sentence response?
