This homework checks your ability to identify wastes in a process.  Based on the HBR reading, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, create an executive summary about the following points:
Introduction – Briefly describe the current situation at the hospital.
Describe the waste(s) in the receiving area facility layout.
Describe the waste(s) in the receiving area process steps.
This executive summary should be 1-3 pages written from your perspective.  You do NOT need outside sources, nor should you have an excessive number of direct quotes from the case.  You should read the case, craft a summary, and describe the wastes listed above.  You do not need to propose improvements to the hospital system in this summary.  You are describing the “current state” at the hospital.
