    The world around you is constantly changing. The most important driver for this change is technology. This is especially true for the Healthcare sector, where continuous adaptation to this ever-changing environment can make a world of difference to the health of your patients. 
    This need to continuously adapt is nothing else than the need to continuously improve the way you do things. Continuous Improvement of the way you work requires a mindset. You question the way things are done and want to learn from your mistakes. 

    The mindset alone is not enough to successfully improve the way you work. You will require a structure. Without this structure, you will probably end up in a firefighting mode, putting out the fire, but never ‘extinguishing’ the root cause.

    This structure is provided by Lean Six Sigma. This Online Lean Six Sigma Healthcare Yellow Belt course is the ideal starting point to learn more about Lean Six Sigma in the context of a Healthcare environment.
