In this ever changing healthcare environment, having skills that engage everyone in the workforce to solve problems and make improvements is essential. Creating a Lean Culture in your organization is the first step.
Never before has it been more essential to tap into the talents and expertise available at all levels of an organization. Executives must create and communicate a vision, managers must mentor and coach staff, staff must be empowered to solve problems and make improvements in real time. Creating a Lean culture provides the common language and tools necessary to reframe how we think about problem solving at all levels. We must encourage, train, and expect those closest to the work to implement improvements.
