My New Lean Healthcare Workshop through LEI


    Key Concepts of Lean in Healthcare –

    As part of my role with the Lean Enterprise Institute, I am developing a two-day intro course that's designed for people in healthcare. The link to the course is above. You can see the outline of the course.

    I'm curious to get feedback from you, the blog readers. Please use the comments feature or email me and let me know what you think. Would this hit the mark for your healthcare organization? Would this provide the right level of overview for leaders at different levels?


    This two-day interactive workshop is designed for individuals and teams that want to gain a better understanding of the components and underlying philosophy of lean, and how the elements and philosophy work together to create a lean healthcare organization. This course is designed specifically for healthcare settings, incorporating examples from many departments and patient pathways.

    This course explains how the visible tools and methods of lean are based on a mindset, philosophy, and thought process. Special emphasis is placed on balancing Toyota's equally-important core principles of continuous improvement and “respect for people.” Practical steps will be presented for starting with lean immediately upon returning to your healthcare organization, as well as a way of thinking through a longer-term lean strategy for your organization.

    If you have considered or investigated this workshop, but have not registered, I am interested in your feedback if you would click here for a one-question survey.
