Derived from Toyota Production System Efficiency and Quality are both important Every step in process should add VALUE Eliminate all WASTE from the system EVERY member of the team is valued for their contributions to the process AND their ideas for improving the system/insuring safety At Toyota we get brilliant results from average people managing a brilliant process. Others get average results from

brilliant people managing broken processes. --The Toyota Motor Company Even Mr. Potato Head has Gone Lean BEFORE A Slimmed Down Spud LEAN BELT PROGRESSION

Theres been a terrible accident! The Situation A bus filled with 16 Potato Head family members is in a terrible crash! EMS arrives at the scene to find only potato body parts scattered about. Luckily, there is an electronic medical record showing what each family member looks like.

The Game Your team is the Trauma Team in the ER The goal of the game is to accurately assemble as many patients as possible in 7 minutes The Rules 1. Only 2 people from each team can physically implant the Potato Head body parts (Implantation Specialists) 2. Completed patients must be inspected. 3. There are no other rules.

Before we start We need 3 brave volunteers Systems & Waste System 1 System 2 System 3

First Lessons Learned Quality is influenced more often by the SYSTEM than the individual players How much waste is actually in the system Think LEAN!! ASSEMBLE YOUR TEAMS Choose your 2 Implantation Specialists Patient photos in the bag Bring assembled patients to

Check Out You have 2 minutes to plan your teams system You have 7 minutes to process all 16 patients. TAKE A FEW MINUTES.. Take 2 Minutes to plan your teams system. Inspection Stations

Bring completed patient AND photo to your designated inspection station 7 Minutes! http://www.online-stopwatch.com/full-screen-stopwatch/ Why did we pick 7 minutes? If it takes 20-30 seconds to correctly assemble one Potato Head with no waste in the system, it should

take maximum of 8 minutes to assemble all 16 if only 1 assembler. You have an entire team! Guinness Book of World Records fastest assembly of a Mr. Potato Head: Samet Durmaz of Turkey. 6.62 seconds! Tracking Your Data/Progress PDSA 1 Team 1 Team 2 Team 3

Take 2 Minutes to discuss how your team will improve the quality and efficiency of your patient care. Start PDSA CYCLE #2 Switch Bags! You dont see the same patients every day! Notice there are many differences in each

body part (i.e. ears, eyes, mouths) Demonstrates how each patient is unique! You have 7 Minutes! 7 Minutes! http://www.online-stopwatch.com/full-scree n-stopwatch/ PDSA Cycle #2 How many patients did you treat correctly during this cycle?

How many errors did your team make? How long did it take you to complete your first patient? How would you plot your data? What changes will your team make for next cycle to eliminate waste and improve both quality & efficiency? Tracking Your Data/Progress PDSA 2

town and you now have Locum Tenens MDs filling in. Implantation Specialists must switch tables! BACK TO YOUR TEAMS Take 2 Minutes to discuss how your team will improve the quality and efficiency of your patient care with NEW TEAM

MEMBERS! Start CYCLE #3 Switch Bags Again! You Have 7 Minutes! http://www.online-stopwatch.com/full-screenstopwatch/ Review PDSA Cycle #3 How did your new team do? How did having new team members effect your quality

and/or efficiency? Did you change your system? If we did PDSA Cycle #4 Unfortunately, Federal Budget cuts continue and reimbursements from Medicare and Medicaid are down substantially. We have to lay off one team member from each team

The tallest person on the team has to step away from the table and observe Team Outcome Review What I learned from Mr. Potato Head: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

6. 7. 8. The system is the critical determinant of performance. Good communication is essential for a high-functioning team. Good ideas for improvement can come from anyone on the team. Data is essential to drive improvement efforts. Repeating PDSA cycles is a valuable process. Efficiency is enhanced when value-added work is

increased and waste is reduced. (LEAN) With very simple changes in system, you can improve quality, efficiency, and safety! QUALITY IMPROVEMENT CAN BE FUN! MEDICINE IS A TEAM SPORT! RememberThere are Different ways to achieve the same goals Suitcase of Tools Thank you for participating!

Be sure to take these tools back with you to your clinics, wards, ward/ICU teams! With very small changes, you can make BIG differences in both safety and efficiency! Questions/Comments?
