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 isnâ€šÃ„Ã´t just for manufacturing anymore.
As Iâ€šÃ„Ã´ve worked in healthcare over the past four years, Iâ€šÃ„Ã´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 youâ€šÃ„Ã´re interested, the web link for more information and registration is www.worldrg.com/toyota.
If youâ€šÃ„Ã´re wondering, yes, Iâ€šÃ„Ã´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.
