WHAT: CPCC Corporate and Continuing Education, together with Lean Advisors, Inc., has developed two, new seminars – “Introduction to Lean Healthcare” and  “Enterprise Value Stream Mapping” – to help healthcare providers better manage the many workplace issues currently impacting the healthcare industry, including rising costs, staff shortages, increases in demand and quality issues.

Healthcare professionals are encouraged to attend one, or both, of the following two-day seminars to learn how applying Lean concepts can improve the speed, quality and cost of service.

Introduction to Lean Healthcare (November 16-17, 2011)
Class discussions will focus on two major objectives: applying Lean tools to address customer satisfaction and flow. Findings suggest this approach transforms organizations, providing more value to patients and creating less stress for workers.

Enterprise Value Stream Mapping (December 7-8, 2011)
Using the Lean Advisors approach, students will learn how to create value by eliminating activities considered waste. Our instructors will discuss how to make end-to-end “system level” improvements to your processes and transform your company’s value stream so that it succeeds at all levels.

WHEN: 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.

WHERE: CPCC Harris Campus, Harris II Building, Room 2124, 3210 CPCC Harris Campus Dr.

CONTACT: The cost is $495 per person (includes materials, lunch and Campus Access Parking and Security fee). To register, call 704.330.4223 or visit, search: lean healthcare.
