This event enables an organization’s team members to come to our genba (where the work happens) to master skills in kaizen (improvement work) through active participation in a Rapid Process Improvement Workshop at Virginia Mason.
What is a Rapid Process Improvement Workshop (RPIW)?
An RPIW is a five-day workshop focused on a particular process in which the people who do the work are empowered to eliminate waste and reduce the burden of work. It is designed around the plan-do-study-act (PDSA) method.
