Great news! This is quite an honor and I'm very excited. My book, Lean Hospitals: Improving Quality, Patient Safety, and Employee Satisfaction has been awarded a Research and Professional Publication Award by the Shingo Prize for Operational Excellence. I just found out today.

I'm thrilled to be given this prize, named in honor of Dr. Shigeo Shingo, one of the founders of the Toyota Production System. It's also an honor to be included with such an illustrious list of previous Research Prize winners. I'm not sure yet who the other winners are, but I'll post it here when it's formally announced.

Hope to see some of you at the Conference and Awards Banquet in Nashville.
