That's a lofty goal, something to keep in mind. For now though, the more immediate and pressing point is to begin learning a system which may help me/us in my/our quest for unified quality. As a physician, I have made a commitment to start learning process improvement and, hopefully, how it can help my medicine. I'm beginning my journey here, with a course to become a Green Belt in Lean/Six Sigma. Like an intrepid explorer of yore, I will chronicle my journey and God-willing beyond through this blog. I'm excited for my departure, and will let you know my initial impressions in October.
