Each webinar is offered at no cost to HCD members, and will be available any time, on your schedule for your convenience. The format for follow-up discussion for this webinar is different than recent webinars presented by HCD. Instead of a live teleconference, we anticipate that HCD will offer a one-day workshop at the end of ASQ’s Lean Six Sigma Conference in Phoenix on March 4, 2015. This workshop tentatively will be presented by Dr. Benneyan, where he will further describe how to scope, implement, and measure healthcare systems engineering projects. Watch the HCD web site for further information on this program.
