Learn how to identify a minimum of two hours per month of non-value added activity through the use of leader standard work.

Sutter Gould Medical Foundation started its lean journey in 2010 with a single value stream. Today, the organization has seven active value streams and aims to unleash the intellectual power of every member of every team. At this event, clinical operations managers, supervisors and directors will share their journey to eliminate non-value added activities and replace them with the value-added activities of coaching and developing their teams into effective problem-solvers.
