Why We Do It
Concepts of Lean and Six Sigma have been around for over a century, but adoption of the methodologies is relatively new to the healthcare industry. Implementing Lean Six Sigma is about more than learning the tools and fancy lingo, it’s about changing the way people think. Incredible movements and innovations are developed when people embody a new way of thinking – just consider the civil rights and women’s rights movements, the discovery of electricity, flight, and the Internet. These every-day facets of today’s life started as implausible dreams.
Now imagine the potential of your organization if your team members embodied a new way of thinking about every-day processes – no wait times, no hospital-acquired infections, no falls. Obviously Lean Six Sigma is not a silver bullet, but it can help you develop and attain goals that were once seen as impossible.
Achieving the impossible starts with changing the way people think. If you change minds, you can change the world. This is the premise on which services were developed at J. Osley & Co.
J. Osley & Co. supports healthcare systems through organizational transformation using Lean Six Sigma concepts, tools, and techniques. Critical components of a successful Lean Six Sigma transformation are reinforced through strategic planning, knowledge expansion, operational improvements, and coaching / mentoring of team members.
