What Others Are Saying…

"It is a great joy to see lean thinking catching on in health care. I hope many organizations will take advantage of this unique opportunity at Johns Hopkins."
Jim Womack, Founder and Chairman, Lean Enterprise Institute (LEI)

“Lean Sigma addresses problems with a scientific, statistical approach familiar to physicians and other health care providers. This methodology has shown promise here at Hopkins, and I believe there is a need to share this knowledge more broadly."
Dr. Christopher U. Lehmann, Assistant Professor of Pediatrics and of Health Information Sciences, The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine

“I’d like to see more (of the administrators) become experts in the science of safety by getting training in techniques, such as Lean Sigma, for streamlining processes, reducing waste and cutting down on errors...This kind of leadership can help units develop tools they need to reach a higher goal: undertaking safety projects on their own and feeling empowered to do so.”
Ronald R. Peterson, President, The Johns Hopkins Hospital and Health System
Executive Vice President, Johns Hopkins Medicine
