5S for Healthcare (Lean Tools for Healthcare Series)

14th December 2009

While there are a growing number of books based on the Toyota Production System, or lean, focused on healthcare, there are very few that detail the tools that make lean more than just a way of thinking and put the methodology into practice.

5S for Healthcare

'Based on Hiroyuki Hirano's classic 5 Pillars of the Visual Workplace and modeled after the Shingo Prize-winning Shopfloor Series for Lean Manufacturers, 5S for Healthcare adopts a proven reader-friendly format to impart all the information needed to understand and implement this essential lean methodology.  It provides examples and cased studies based on the experiences of the principals involved with the Rona Consulting Group, who were responsible for the groundbreaking implementation of the Toyota Production System at the Virginia Mason Medical Center.

Written to readily assist with hands-on implementation efforts, this volume offers innovative features designed to improve understanding and support application.  This includes helpful how-to-steps and practical examples taken directly from the healthcare industry.
