Summary – Gemba Walk Network @ St. Vincent’s Hospital

The first meeting of the Gemba Walk Network took place at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Worcester, MA. on December 5, 2013.

Ironically, St. Vincent’s subject was their daily Gemba Walk.

Attending companies:

Baystate Health

Southworth Corp.

EIS Wire & Cable

North Amherst Motors

St. Vincent’s team does Gemba walks every day, going to see 24 different areas.  Each area quickly reports the status of their problems and improvement activities.  Our network attendees were very impressed by the process in; scope, inclusiveness and obvious leadership support and daily commitment.

We have several events upcoming for early 2014.  When I have the details I will let you know though this blog.

Thanks to the entire St. Vincent’s team for their good work and support of our fledgling network, as well as our guest/attendees.

Without hosts and guests we cannot go see, meet people, ask questions or develop helpful contacts.
