Lean management is being recognized globally as a solution which affords clear guidelines for identifying these inefficiencies, while providing effective methods for developing effective, sustainable change solutions. Students who earn this certificate will be at a unique advantage and in high-demand in the field of healthcare administration, as the Joint Commission Center for Transformative Healthcare encourages use of Lean Six Sigma principles.
