Free “Lean 101” Webinar (& More) from the Iowa Healthcare Collaborative

1

Thanks to my good friend Dean Bliss of the Iowa Healthcare Collaborative. You might recognize Dean as a frequent commenter here on the blog or you've heard my podcast with him (when he was with the Iowa Health System).

Here is a link to a 20-minute webinar that serves as a good introduction for those of you who are new to Lean or new to healthcare.

In the short overview, Dean covers a brief history of Lean, the types of waste, and some basic Lean methods. He also touches on Lean culture and the need to have everybody involved in improvement.
