Change Management

Change Management is a team-based approach to transitioning individuals, workgroups and organizations from a current state to a desired state.

Process Improvement

Process Improvement is a team-based approach to improving or redesigning workflow. Lean is a process improvement methodology derived from the Toyota Production System, which focuses on eliminating waste in our work processes. Lean can be used in any kind of work environment (office, clinical, manufacturing, etc.) and has been applied to various process improvement projects across OHSU.
