Strategy Session for the Lean Transformation

Is your senior leadership team fully aligned around an approach toward operational excellence and high reliability? Do they know what their next steps should be? During this two-day session, facilitated by a senior leader and a lean coach with extensive experience in driving organizational transformation, the executive team of your organization will deepen their understanding about their current state and develop a plan to address key gaps to transformation.      

Through facilitated discussion, your team will create a summary document outlining the detailed analysis performed by participants and specific tactics to implement strategies during a planning horizon of 12-18 months and an action plan for the organization to achieve, sustain and continuously improve measurable performance.

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Describe how high performing healthcare organizations are delivering reliable, high quality care through operational excellence based on lean manufacturing principles.
  • Understand the management practices required to foster an environment of continuous process improvement to consistently exceed performance to standards.
  • Practice a repeatable process for high functioning teams to design, study, and adjust effective experiments to address barriers to operational excellence.
  • Develop a comprehensive strategic plan to address the key barriers to providing ready access to care and creating a culture of safety and effective processes for safe and reliable care.
