Joining me for Episode #169 is Leonard L. Berry, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Marketing in the Mays Business School at Texas A&M University. We are talking about his article that he co-authored with John Toussaint, MD Mayo Clinic Proceedings: “The Promise of Lean in Health Care” (PDF) – which I blogged about earlier. In this podcast, Len talks about his time being embedded in ThedaCare and the lessons he learned there… for example, why is it incorrect to assume that “standardized work” means something stifling?
