Lean Operations

Lean health care organizations provide exceptional value to clients by engaging all clinician and staff members to strive for continuous improvement, or kaizen, and practicing just-in-time (JIT) production to eliminate non-value-adding activities from their processes.

To become a successful lean organization, our professionals will introduce you to lean operations and the JIT production of products and services adapted from the Toyota Management System. A lean production system effectively improves interactions among people, materials, and machines through elements such as standard work, kanban—a scheduling system, visual display, one-piece flow, and the pull system.

These all work to provide highest-quality products and services that respond to patient and customer needs.
