Is your healthcare organization struggling to sustain improvement gained through the application of lean principles? Are you facing challenges in implementing daily improvement and aligning work to strategic goals?
Managing a lean organization requires a different type of leadership and a shift from management-by-objectives to management-by-process. A lean management system enables the adoption of management by the process, regulates the flow of information from the front lines to senior leaders and back, fosters engagement of all employees in process improvement, and allows for daily coaching and teaching. During this overview session, participants will learn about a journey to develop a lean management system at a healthcare organization and experience an in-depth framework for each element that comprises it. Exercises are geared toward managers in operations who are working to implement elements in their departments.
