Greetings and Welcome to Lean Operational Strategy!

In this course, you will learn how to identify waste in laboratory processes considered as value–add necessary tasks and activities for the overall process or non-value add or waste. We will learn to identify and eliminate waste and inefficiency through the adoption of Lean. We will learn Lean tools, fundamentals of work rules, practical examples and discuss the methodology referred to as 14 principles of the Toyota Way as described by Jeffrey Liker Ph.D. Throughout the course, we will brainstorm the application of eight of the 14 principles we call operational principles specifically adaptable to laboratory work flow. These Lean principles serve as the foundation or blue print to improve workflow by continuously implementing improvements in your laboratory from specimen collection to report.

The eight operational principles adapted to the laboratory to improve workflow are as follows:

  1. Create a continuous process flow
  2. Use the “Pull System”
  3. Level out the workload
  4. Build a culture to stop and fix problems
  5. Standardization of tasks
  6. Use visual controls
  7. Go and See
  8. Decide carefully by consensus, Implement rapidly
  • Learning Objectives: At the end of this course the learner will be able to:
  1. Discuss a strategy to implement a continuous improvement initiative based the 14 Principles of the Toyota Way
  2. Apply Lean operational principles applicable to specific laboratory processes
  3. Identify potential process improvements based on tools and concepts of Lean
