The programme will:
— Develop and embed lean techniques and processes into the TDA team and selected NHS Trusts;
— Include site leader, team leaders and participant training process;
— Incorporate mentoring and coaching of leaders;
— Be certificated to ensure participants meet the appropriate standard to lead and implement lean programmes to a consistent standard and depth of knowledge; and,
