The mission of LeanOhio is to make government services in Ohio simpler, faster, better, and less costly. Using continuous improvement methods such as Lean and Six Sigma, Ohio's state agencies are cutting red tape, removing inefficiencies, improving customer service, and achieving measurable results
The LeanOhio Network
includes hundreds of employees who have been involved in Kaizen events
. Many state employees have gone on to earn advanced skills through Green Belt or Black Belt certification. The Network includes state employee unions and members who promote Lean, improve processes, and partner with the state to teach Lean tools and strategies. Soon, the network will expand to include local government in Ohio.
Each state agency has a Lean Liaison. This ensures communication and coordination throughout state government. Liaisons identify improvement opportunities, engage agency staff in improvement efforts, and ensure that changes are implemented and sustained.
LeanOhio is coordinated by the LeanOhio Office
, within the Ohio Department of Administrative Services
. Office associates are Lean experts who serve as internal consultants. Services
include training, strategic planning, meeting facilitation, data collection and analysis, and Lean event leadership.
