Addressing the challenges involved in achieving standard work in health care, Getting to Standard Work in Health Care: Using TWI to Create a Foundation for Quality Care describes how to incorporate the most widely used Training Within Industry (TWI) method, the Job Instruction (JI) training module, to facilitate performance excellence and boost employee morale in a health care organization. It not only examines the JI methodology but also explains how this program is as vital and applicable in today’s health care environment as it was when it was developed to train replacements of an industrial workforce off to fight in WWII. Placing this methodology squarely within the health care paradigm, the book uses easy-to-understand terminology to describe how this method can make all the difference in the delivery of quality health care. Supplying the foundation for successful Lean practice in health care, it clearly defines the role of standard work and training in relation to Lean health care. The text includes case studies of current TWI usage in health care that demonstrate how to successfully roll out a sustainable Job Instruction initiative. Containing numerous examples of Job Instruction breakdowns in health care, the book provides you with the understanding of how to use this time-tested methodology to improve training, increase efficiency, and decrease strain in your organization.

This book is an implementation manual for lean tools and principles in a healthcare environment. Lean is a growth strategy, a survival strategy, and an improvement strategy. The goal of lean is, first and foremost, to provide value to the patient/customer, and in so doing eliminate the delays, overcrowding, and frustration associated with the existing care delivery system. Lean creates a better working environment where what is supposed to happen does happen. On time, every time. It allows clinicians to spend more of their time caring for patients and improves the quality of care these patients receive. A lean organization values its employees and encourages their involvement in organizational initiatives which, in turn, sustains hospital-wide quality improvements. The opportunities for lean in healthcare are limitless. This is not a book to be read and forgotten, nor is it meant to sit on a book shelf as another addition to an impressive but underutilized collection of how-to books. As the name implies, it is a guide; a companion to be referenced again and again as the organization moves forward with its lean transformation.
