Lean Academy

Expand your Lean knowledge and skills at the Denver Health Lean Academy

What is Lean?

Lean is a methodology to improve performance and eliminate waste to progress work-place efficiency and effectiveness. The Denver Health Lean Academy builds on the organization's culture of continuous improvement and learning; fostering collaboration with others to ensure strategic alignment and advance performance excellence.

Denver Health was one of the first healthcare delivery organizations to successfully adopt Lean as an improvement methodology with quantified success.  Through Denver Health's Lean Academy, learners continue their Lean journey as they learn the value of Lean methodology and practices.

Coronavirus update

In order to do our part to slow the spread of COVID-19, we have decided to suspend our remaining Lean Academy classes for March. We understand the inconvenience this may cause, but we believe it is imperative that we do our part to protect the health of our participants, staff and Denver Health patients.   

If you had already planned to attend a course in March, we are able to offer you priority seating in either our July or August sessions (or later if preferred). Please contact us at LeanAcademy@dhha.org if you have any questions.
