Innovation/Lean Design – February 2017

Training imagesLean (Two-Day) Workshop

Lean can be applied to virtually any system where waste exists. Easy to learn and apply, Lean methodology has helped Sibley to realize many benefits. Hundreds of executives, physicians, managers and staff have been trained thus far. Armed with Lean tools and techniques, frontline staff can identify waste in their health care delivery processes and reduce/eliminate that waste. Next two-day session: Wednesday, April 26 to Thursday, April 27.

Lean Sigma (Five-Day) Workshop

The five-day Lean Sigma Prescription for Healthcare Green Belt Certificate Course customizes the Lean Sigma approach for health care professionals using Minitab Statistical Software. For the first time, this course was conducted in the National Capital Area by Sibley at the end of January.

Design Team Training

The Sibley Innovation Hub believes everyone has the ability to be creative and solve problems through human-centered design. To get started, we offer an introduction to design called design team training. Design team training is a one-day workshop from 8:45 a.m. to 5 p.m., with breakfast and lunch included, facilitated by Frankie Abralind, design coach in the Hub. Frankie is an experienced designer who studied design at Cornell University and earned his M.B.A. from the University of Maryland. In the workshop, participants get hands-on experience using human-centered design to tackle a challenge in the health care experience. Upon completion, you’ll understand the design process and feel prepared to lead your own design projects to solve problems or create new things in your area of work.

Upcoming classes: Thursday, Feb. 16 and Thursday, March 16. Sign up here.
