CPI Outreach: Providing Shared Learning Opportunities

Applying the principles of the Toyota Production System to a pediatric healthcare system did not come easy, nor did it come overnight. If we have learned anything over the years, it is that we still have a lot of learn! We have recognized the importance both of sharing our journey as well as learning from others on a similar journey, which is why we created our CPI Outreach Program – a way to share our key successes and lessons learned over the years and connect with colleagues across a variety of industries.

Whether you are just starting out on your own CPI journey or are several years into your improvement efforts, we look forward to the opportunity to share our work with you. The CPI Outreach Program encompasses a variety of opportunities, outlined below.

To inquire about a program or sign up for a particular date, please contact us.

CPI Showcases

Interested in a customized experience of our CPI efforts? Bring your team or members of your organization to Seattle Children’s for a showcase. We offer both half-day and one-day CPI Showcases tailored to your team’s interests that provide an opportunity to discuss our journey with senior leaders, as well as see how CPI has impacted our everyday work and improved the patient and family experience.

CPI Showcases are fee-based and subject to availability.
