Mark Graban & Joe Swartz on the “Gemba Academy Podcast”


Thanks to my friends at Gemba Academy for having my Healthcare Kaizen co-author Joe Swartz and me on their podcast, in an episode that was released yesterday:

GA 156 | The Current State of Lean in Healthcare with Mark Graban and Joe Swartz

In the episode, we talk about Lean and Kaizen in healthcare, our upcoming (and sold out) “Kaizen Live!” event at Joe's health system (Franciscan St. Francis Health), why they benefit from hosting a visit like this, and more.

If you listen to the episode, Ron gives information about how to get a free 30-day trial for their outstanding Gemba Academy learning platform, which allows you to view, among other things, some fantastic videos they shot during a visit to Franciscan.

I hope you enjoy the discussion!
