Lean methodology has proven effective in reducing costs and waste, and improving quality and value. Unfortunately, many in health care interpret lean's emphasis on reducing variation and standardizing work as anti-innovation. The book describes how VMMC has systematically integrated the structures, methods and cultural practices from the creativity and innovation literature into its implementation of lean. The theme of the book will be to show--not just conceptually, but through VMMC's actual experiences--how lean and innovation can work hand-in-hand to both incrementally improve and radically transform value streams.
