Upcoming Healthcare Conference with Dean Bliss


    Mark's note: Dean told me about his involvement in this event and I asked him to share a bit about it here:

    By Dean Bliss:

    Those of us outside manufacturing face challenges in bringing the Lean philosophy to our industries. We are often convincing people that Lean isn’t just for manufacturing anymore.

    As I’ve worked in healthcare over the past four years, I’ve sought out those who have had success in healthcare continuous improvement. Some of those pioneers will be featured in an upcoming conference.

    In June, a conference on Lean in healthcare is being conducted by the World Research Group in San Francisco . ThedaCare, Denver Health, and many others who are having great success with Lean will be featured.

    If you’re interested, the web link for more information and registration is www.worldrg.com/toyota.

    If you’re wondering, yes, I’m one of the presenters. But I plan to learn and bring back new ideas to my organization, not just present, during the two days. It will be a great opportunity for those of us in healthcare to learn and grow in the philosophies and techniques of Lean.
