Lean Blog Flashback to 2013: Detect or Inspect?

Looking For Clues (188 / 365)This week, I’m taking a week off from new blog posts due to a pressing deadline for the 3rd edition of my book Lean Hospitals, our first KaiNexus User Conference, and few other things.

Here is a post from today’s date, October 30, 2013. It’s a guest post by my friend Brian Buck, who works at Seattle Children’s Hospital.

Brian’s post helps illustrate the idea that 100% inspection isn’t 100% effective. That’s certainly true in book copy editing, even when done by professionals!
