Lean Workshops

Flows of MedicineVirginia Mason Institute lean workshops are for healthcare organizations looking to take the next step, by developing the skills and methodologies necessary to implement lean tools at their organization. For more than a decade, Virginia Mason has been a leader of innovations in healthcare by implementing lean processes to improve healthcare quality and safety, while reducing waste.

Our lean workshops leverage our experience by teaching you how to successfully apply lean tools and methodology to your own processes. Depending on the workshop, you can expect to learn: how to refine key processes with value stream mapping, how to identify and eliminate healthcare waste, and how to design spaces that increase patient care quality and safety.

Workshops typically last two to three days and are located at the Virginia Mason Institute training facility in Seattle, Washington.

"I found the 3P event to be very engaging and informative. I really liked your measured approach at helping us to "think outside the box", while building consensus and developing actionable solutions."
