When the Covid19 pandemic is no longer the prime burden on British health services, it might be possible to refocus on the three concerns that threatened to overwhelm the National Health Service in 2019. Namely, heart disease, cancer and obesity.
Whilst the NHS can reasonably claim to have made progress with the first two, it is faced with an ever-increasing level in obesity. To non-clinical members of society this may seem rather surprising, considering the relative simplicity of the fat producing process, compared with the extreme complexity of cancer and heart disease. It may seem even more surprising to the many statisticians and process improvement professionals who witnessed the great success of blackbelts improving organisational processes whilst working within a culture of “Six-Sigma”.
Part 2 of this presentation will suggest how the blackbelt way of working can be adapted to improve processes within the human body. It will offer an approach that might help to reduce the ever-increasing level of obesity that has blighted so many lives.
