“Lean Hospitals” Wins Prestigious Shingo Research and Professional Publication Award
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.

Congratulations Mark on a well deserved recognition for an excellent book.!
Excellent. Congratulations! I hope this helps more health care people to pick it up and read it.
And keep up with all the great work you are doing!
I’d love to come check this event out, but $1300 is a bit out of my current price range.
Congratulations Mark! Lean Hospitals is the Book for Healthcare! Way to go!
Congrats, Mark, although I am not surprised! Well-deserved.
You earned and deserve this, Mark. Congratulations.
Congratulations! You’ve created a great resource for those of us in Lean healthcare. Nice to see you get the recognition you deserve. Well done.

You Rock Mark!
I can’t say I’m the least bit surprised!
Lead the way mate! We’re all watching.
[…] Thanks again to the Shingo Prize Organization for once again honoring my work, after my first book Lean Hospitals also received this recognition in 2009. […]
