Boston, MA, March 28, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- The programs are open to all people working in all health settings, including labs, clinics, dental offices, pharmacies, and skilled nursing facilities. On Friday, May 22, 2015, GBMP Continuous Improvement Manager Dan Fleming will teach “5S in Healthcare: Improvement Patient Experience through Staff Engagement” and on Friday, June 19, he will return to Fenway Health to teach “Problem Solving for Lean Teams: Techniques to Succeed in the Changing Healthcare Environment.”
The Continuous Improvement philosophies and best practices taught by GBMP to eliminate waste in manufacturing and office settings have been put to the test in healthcare environments around the world with much success. The healthcare industry is a perfect setting to reap the benefits of Lean and can lead to fewer accidents and mistakes, improved employee morale, increased throughput, reduced costs and higher profits.
GBMP's philosophy is that the process of acquiring knowledge is best done through tacit learning. This is the reason that GBMP workshops take place at a healthcare facility instead of in a hotel meeting room. Workshops consist of both classroom learning on the philosophy behind the Continuous Improvement concept followed by hands-on practice applying the tool in the workplace. GBMP instructors act as mentors and facilitators, allowing attendees to use their talents to best apply lean concepts, and enabling them to leave the workshop not only with the knowledge, but also the confidence, to implement the methodology in their own workplace.
