Applying Lean in Healthcare: A Collection of International Case Studies (repost)

Joe Aherne and John Whelton, "Applying Lean in Healthcare: A Collection of International Case Studies"
English | ISBN: 1439827397 | 2010 | 247 pages | PDF | 4 MB

Typically entrenched and systemic, healthcare problems require the sort of comprehensive solutions that can only be addressed by a change in culture and a shift in thinking. Applying Lean in Healthcare: A Collection of International Case Studies demonstrates how honest appraisal, intelligent planning, and vigilant follow-up have led to dramatic improvements in a variety of healthcare settings across the world. It teaches us how innovative organizations can find sustainable solutions to seemingly intractable problems by following a path guided by Lean Thinking. Lean methods may not solve every healthcare problem, but as these cases prove, changing a culture rather than personnel results in more effective sustainable change.
