Lean Hospitals Book Update – Aug 12
I know this has been frustrating for people, but here's the best I know. Some of you have gotten your copies, but my book is current out of stock on the Productivity Press website. Amazon.com's page is frustrating, as it keeps fluctuating between things like “available in 5 to 7 days” or “available August 17.” I don't have any visibility into the supply chain there… it's a mystery to me. I did get one report of a book copy shipping from amazon, but the “test” copy I ordered on July 21 has not shipped yet.
The book has been very popular, which is gratifying… but makes the unavailability more frustrating. I'll have to ask for people to be patient. I'll share the “next shipping date” when I hear from the publisher. The book has gotten into the “Top 20” in the amazon.com healthcare administration category, which is exciting.
In the mean time, use the link at the top of this post to search the book for words and phrases. I think you can also read the full first chapter on the page, and see the table of contents, and other sections. Or you can register to download the chapter here.
I'm still putting together a plan for autographed copies, for those who have asked. I'll do a deal where proceeds will go 100% (above my cost) to a charity, I'm currently thinking the Quaid Foundation for patient safety or a similar organization that focuses on health care processes and systems.
Again, sorry for the delays.
