LeanOhio Overview
Here’s how the LeanOhio Office is making government simpler, faster, better, and less costly.

Major Process Improvement
Consultants from the LeanOhio Office lead major process-improvement events. In 5-day Kaizen events, teams transform key processes -- eliminating red tape, removing bottlenecks, reducing process time, strengthening service, and saving money. Since January 2011, LeanOhio has led over 80 Kaizen events.
Six Sigma Consultation

LeanOhio consultants assist agencies in using Lean Six Sigma tools to find major improvement opportunities (through value-stream mapping), mistake-proof their forms (poka-yoke), reorganize the workspace (5S), analyze data, hear from customers, and more.
Training and Development
The LeanOhio Office has a robust program of training, development, and mentoring. Offerings include White Belt Training (3 hours), Yellow Belt Training (1 day), Boot Camp (1 week), Green Belt Training (2 weeks + project), Black Belt Training (5 weeks + project).
LeanOhio Network
The LeanOhio Network unites State employees who have attended LeanOhio training. The group is 1000 people strong, with 80 Black Belts and 200 Green Belts. Among state governments, Ohio leads the nation with the most in-house Lean expertise.
Lean Leader Development Program LLDP provides high-potential state employees with an immersive experience of advanced learning, practice, and knowledge transfer back to their agencies. Participants work in-house with the LeanOhio Office for up to 3 months strengthening their skills around process improvement.
Lean in Local Government
Designed for Ohio’s political subdivisions, the Local Government Efficiency Program includes scholarships for training and grants for improvement projects. The training is tailored to the public-sector workplace.
