About LeanOhio

The mission of LeanOhio is to make government services in Ohio simpler, faster, better, and less costly. Using the improvement methods of 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 over 1,000 state employees who have been involved in Kaizen events and other improvement process improvement projects. Many have earned Lean certifications through our training program. The Network includes state employees who promote Lean, improve processes, and partner with the state to teach Lean tools and strategies.

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 Six Sigma experts who serve as internal systems improvement consultants.
