Not Just An International Author - Mark Graban Business Problems Solved Podcast

    • Careers

Lee continues his "Not Just An International Author" mini-series, by talking to Mark Graban, a management consultant, and the author of several works, including ‘Lean Hospitals’, and ‘Measures Of Success’.

KEY TAKEAWAYS
Mark has found great success by taking the lessons learned from various sectors, and translating them into others, such as healthcare.
The older, more traditional models say that the higher up you go, the more infallible you become, or the more answers you have. This runs counter to effective problem solving.
Many use the metric of follower numbers in order to denote success, but it should really be measured on the quality of the message.
There is always the element of luck when it comes to opportunities. But luck favours the prepared. We can only take advantage of fortuitous chances if we have laid the groundwork that enables it.

BEST MOMENTS

'I was applying problem solving, and leadership methods from other industries into healthcare’

‘These approaches might run counter to what we’ve been taught’

‘Even if I’m not inventing methods, I’m good at connecting dots’

‘You just have to take advantage of an opportunity when it presents itself, even if it wasn’t part of the plan’
