Building on the Lean culture developed at Toyota, Hoag Hospital has developed a process for presenting decision-making options to its C-suite executives that reduces costly mistakes and forces departments to consider alternatives using a simple, single-page tool. The presenters of this session will make the case for why better decision-making tools are needed in the health care industry, followed by a discussion of the A3 tools and examples on how they were used at Hoag. This session will enable attendees to:
Discover why better decision-making tools are required in the health care industry.
Explore how a health care organization applied Lean methodology to simplify the decision-making process.
Identify opportunities for reducing waste in your own organization through the discipline of Lean thinking.
Obtain a practical decision-making and communication tool for senior leadership.
