During this era of continuous improvement, healthcare organizations need to be staffed by engaged, motivated, and hard-working frontline employees.

Using Lean management strategies, this easy-to-read book for leaders and managers provides useful, insightful, and innovative information to help managers engage, motivate, and retain their employees during any Lean or other continuous improvement initiative.
