How will Bryant's teach and mentor you?

Bryant's will demonstrate to you the basic quality tools of K. Ishikawa of Toyota Motor Corporation, tools which were used in team settings by Toyota to dramatically improve the quality of the autos that they built. With these tools Toyota has enjoyed unparalleled success in the manufacture and sale of autos. Many of these same tools are now being successfully used in healthcare settings.

W. Edwards Deming's 14 Principles of Quality applied to healthcare:

1. Create consistency of purpose toward improvement of care, with a plan to be competitive.

2. Adopt a new philosophy that there shall be no errors and that a procedure is stopped when anyone sees an error.

3. Use statistical processes to build quality processes.

4. End the practice of procuring supplier services based only upon price. Use only suppliers who meet your quality standards and those of your patients.

5. Management should always be looking to find ways to improve upon processes.

6. Institute effective training methods for staff.

7. Management must adopt a new attitude of working with all staff to find ways to improve services and how to deploy the improvements. Teams are important.

8. Drive out fear on the part of staff. Everyone should feel they are a part of the team.

9. Break down barriers between departments. Destroy the silos.

10. Eliminate numerical goals.

11. Eliminate work standards that are build on numerical goals.

12. Each member of the staff has a rigth to be respected and to have pride in his or her work.

13. Improve on training and education of all staff.

14. Create a management structure that actively supports the above 13 points. Leadership is important in quality.
