CANCELED – Lean Principles: Project Charter Preparation and Planning

This program has been rescheduled for February 1, 2018.  Lean principles and methodology are valuable in improving healthcare, but evidence shows that learning about the principles and methodology is simply not enough. In order to get the desired results, the principles must be applied. This program—a follow-up to CHA’s two-part Lean Principles: Process Flow and Value Stream Mapping in Healthcare—provides an overview of the methodology and tools needed for planning process improvement initiatives in your organization.

This is a “how to make it happen session” and will explain (and provide examples of) the elements of an effective project charter, a pre-requisite to any successful improvement initiative. When properly prepared, the charter focuses the team on the business case, problems, objectives, outcomes, and is a major factor in preventing project scope creep.
Participants are asked to bring with them a process improvement opportunity currently under consideration at their facility, enabling them to create a draft charter as part of their actionable plan toward their process improvement initiative.

NOTE: This program is designed for those that attended CHA’s Lean Principles: Process Flow and Value Stream Mapping in Healthcare—or those with a basic understanding of Lean principles and familiarity with the terminology. Clinical leaders, operational managers, continuous improvement coordinators and other change agents will benefit from learning this methodology to properly plan team oriented improvement initiatives.

Breakfast will be provided; registration and breakfast begin at 8:30 a.m.
