About the Session
The benefits of a Lean healthcare enterprise have been well-established, but the journey toward Lean is not always a straight line. Often, companies and health systems fail to harness the potential of Lean thinking because much of what seems obvious and easy to do is met with resistance and skepticism. Adherence to the Lean method is abandoned in favor of shortcuts, and the method is blamed when it was the execution that was flawed. The Lead Through Lean Boot Camp, which is equally beneficial for senior-level and early careerists, takes participants through a series of proof-of-concept exercises that will demonstrate and motivate people to embrace and implement Lean practices in a more consistent and effective manner. Healthcare-specific case studies will illustrate the potential of Lean, and the speaker will introduce a proven formula for applying Lean and demonstrate strategies to achieve the sustainability of Lean benefits. Participants will leave this session equipped with the capability for sustainable improvement based on the application of Lean principles in a healthcare setting.
