Lean Healthcare Overview Article in CFO Mag
I'll share the above link with little commentary for now, a nice overview of Lean Healthcare for CFO Magazine. I helped the writer with research and ended up being quoted a few times. No misquoting, defect free!
There are mentions of a number of great Lean organizations, including ThedaCare and Denver Health. Our friend Bob Emiliani was quoted, too.
I think the article did a nice job of focusing on quality, employee engagement, and not using Lean as a layoff-based cost-cutting strategy (surprising for a magazine for Chief Financial Officers?).
Thoughts on the article? Reactions?
p.s. I'm teaching my Key Concepts of Lean in Healthcare workshop today for the 2nd time after its debut in September. We will be holding it next in warm, sunny Miami on February 2nd and 3rd. Hope you can join us.
