This webinar was held with guest presenter, Mark Graban of http://www.leanblog.org/

Suggestion box programs, while well intended, usually fail to engage employees in any improvement, yet alone continuous improvement. As one healthcare professional said, referring to their old suggestion box, “That’s where good ideas go to die!”

In comparison, the "kaizen" model for improvement, from Lean and Toyota Production System, however, is alive and thriving in many organizations. This webinar will focus on key differences between suggestion box programs and the kaizen model, giving specific tips and ideas that your organization can adopt to make continuous improvement a daily reality.

Guest Mark Graban shared practical methods and strategies from his new book, co-authored with Joe Swartz, Healthcare Kaizen: Engaging Front-Line Staff in Sustainable Continuous Improvements, that will help you engage employees in meaningful, lasting improvement.
