This session will explore actionable strategies for troubleshooting, problem solving and improving lab outcomes and performance. This session will help laboratory leaders navigate the steps involved in interpreting their KPI data to determine if a problem exists, the steps for identifying the source of problems in the lab, and how to implement effective corrective actions to create change in a culture of continuous improvement and excellence.
