The Faculty Career Development Series consists of monthly lectures that are designed to provide early stage investigators with tools, a forum for discussion, and learning opportunities to help advance their careers.

In this presentation, Tom Gallagher, MD and Jennifer Sprecher, the ITHS Director of Lean, will discuss the use of Lean methodology in leadership for creating a high performance research team.
