Healthcare Kaizen Update – Events, Galleys & Early Copies


I'm really looking forward to next week's Lean Healthcare Transformation Summit in Minneapolis. Who else is going? I'll be blogging about it Wednesday through Friday – and tweeting at the hashtag #HCSummit12. Say hi if you are there or follow along online.

We are getting closer to the release date for my upcoming book Healthcare Kaizen. I will have a “galley copy” with me and a few print-on-demand versions that Productivity Press is getting to me before the full release on June 27.

I'll be able to show you the book if you're there at the Summit. LEI will have a copy on their books table or come find me. You can pre-order via Amazon, Productivity Press, or

There will also be a Kindle version coming at or about the paperback release date.

Here is a photo of the galley copy I received in the mail this week. Yeah, that's a moving box. Still too many of those in our new San Antonio home.

I will be doing a “book launch” party here in San Antonio in mid July and another one in Austin TBD. If you're in S.A. or Austin and would like to attend, let me know.

Also, take a look at this event in Seattle on June 14, where I'll be participating with Masaaki Imai. I'm very excited about getting to meet him.
