Today, I'd like to share a podcast where the ScrumCast hosts,  Derek Neighbors and Clayton Lengel-Zigich, interviewed me about Lean in healthcare. Their audience is primarily IT and software people working with Lean-related methodologies called agile, scrum, “Lean Startups,” etc.

They asked great questions and this discussion, about 16 minutes, might serve as a good introduction to those who are curious about Lean in healthcare.

Listen to ScrumCast #52 – Lean Principles in Healthcare.  Or download it via iTunes.

In the podcast, we discussed:

  • Agile outside of software
  • Lean in healthcare
  • Lean as management principles
  • Lean is not cost cutting
  • Risk and quality in Lean
  • Bad processes and lean improvements
  • Improving flow

Thanks to Derek and Clayton for having me on the show! It's great to collaborate and cross-pollinate ideas across industries.
