This panel will focus on strategic partnerships and the evolution of a team and processes. Michuda Construction, an Advocate Healthcare partner, answered Advocate&rspuo's challenge of zero incidents by 2020. The project required more than applying lean terminology to existing procedures. Conversations with Purdue University led to the addition of an eager graduate student, and the journey began. This presentation will be a dynamic discussion with the team and review lessons learned, best practices, new tools, and a valued partnership.
