Workshop 3

Developing the future organizational chart

November 30 and December 1, 2016

Relive the day


Using 2D and 3D models, participants identified the essential, important and desirable links between the functional units of the hospital – such as the emergency department (ED) and the intensive care unit or the ED and the operating room – and then created an organizational chart.

The consulting firm Groupe Solutions Systémiques (GSS) joined the project team to bring its expertise in Lean Design to the planning process of the future hospital.


The organizational chart, which is the backbone of the project, illustrates the essential and important proximity links between hospital units.
