Getting “Lean” is not Just for Keeping in Physical Shape or Manuafacturing Anymore

I have been a fan of Lean production and management practices for over 25 years (a big fan William Edward Deming) and have used these practices in many of my own professional services organizations.  In our recent EMPH class in Managerial and Organization Behavior taught by Dr. Thomas D’Aunno, we have discussed the use of Lean practices in health care settings.  A very important and current issue at a time where all health care providers are carefully looking at increasing quality and operational efficiency.  A recent article I came across by Mark Graban which you can find here, discusses the use of Lean practices for all types of knowledge based work.
