Lean in Healthcare Certificate Program

  • Emerson Hospital 133 Old Rd. to 9 Acre Corner Concord, MA 01742 US (map)

Today more than ever, hospitals are challenged to improve quality and reduce costs as they deliver improved care to patients. At the same time, healthcare workers are faced with broken processes, equipment and supply issues that frustrate patients and staff alike.

This course, lead by Daniel Fleming, teaches leaders, managers, and staff how to apply real process-improvement and problem-solving techniques in an actual hospital setting.

This intense eight-day course provides participants with hands-on experience learning and applying both the technical science and social science of lean. The technical science of lean focuses on learning and applying lean tools and techniques, while the social science aspect of it focuses on people and organizational development. Both are necessary for an effective lean implementation.
