As I continue my journey in lean healthcare, I'm enjoying the chance to learn about the cultures of healthcare organizations. One book I've started reading could easily apply to lean efforts in any setting. But the author's lessons remind me of TPS and lean management concepts. I'm the administrator here.
I work for you. What should I do today? Studer advocates for the idea that leaders need to help create an environment where people want to work. I like how Studer focuses on asking the employees what needs to happen. Management doesn't need to have all of the answers, you need to focus on people and building a workplace that naturally retains and attracts good people. My goal was to hardwire results so that when I left, they would sustain the gains. Hardwiring works.

Then again, unless you're the owner of the company maybe you don't have a true incentive to do that, the way most managers and executives are able to change jobs and change companies so often.
