Science of Improvement: Forming the Team

Including the right people on an improvement team is critical to a successful improvement effort. Teams vary in size and composition. Each organisation builds teams to suit its own needs.

First, review the aim. Model for Improvement

Second, consider the system that relates to that aim: What system will be affected by the improvement efforts?

Third, be sure that the team includes members familiar with all the different parts of the process — managers and administrators as well as those who work in the process, including physicians, pharmacists, nurses, and front-line workers.

Finally, each team needs an executive sponsor who takes responsibility for the success of the project.
