Lean as a learning system in a hospital ward Purpose – The purpose of this article is to discuss lean as a learning system in a hospital ward. Design/methodology/approach – Discusses lean as a learning system in a hospital ward. Findings – The Toyota veterans are fond of saying, lean is about “making people before making parts” or, in the wards' context, developing nurses before delivering care. Originality/value – This example in using lean to carefully build a learning environment for staff and management has implications for nursing practice, certainly, but also more generally for lean implementation at large. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Leadership in Health Services Emerald Publishing
