Alan Keith of Genetech stated, “Leadership is ultimately about creating a way for people to contribute to making something extraordinary happen.”1 Kotwal et al2 report on a remarkable commitment to casualty care by the 75th Ranger Regiment. The Rangers coupled a novel approach to combat casualty care with modern continuous process improvement. When this was applied in battle, the process resulted in the lowest mortality rate, especially the preventable mortality rate, in the Armed Forces.
