Book Endorsements:

"Mark Graban is the consummate translator of the vernacular of the Toyota Production System into the everyday parlance of health care. With each concept and its application, the reader is challenged to consider what is truly possible in the delivery of health care if only standardized systems borrowed from reliable industries, were implemented. Graban provides those trade secrets in an understandable and transparent fashion."
-- Richard Shannon, MD
Executive Vice President for Health Affairs, University of Virginia

"The concepts outlined in this book are the most powerful tools that I have ever encountered to foster innovation, ownership, and accountability at the front line staff level. This is a must read for any leader in today’s increasingly complex healthcare industry."
-- Brett Lee, Ph.D., FACHE
Market Chief Executive Officer, Tenet Healthcare
