 LeanOhio Boot Camp: Transforming the Public Sector

This intensive four-day training gets people learning and using Lean methods and tools. The entire program is tailored to the public-sector workplace and public-sector processes. Included is an in-depth simulation involving a prototypical agency, so participants build their toolkits by way of a real-world situation. 

This is practical training aimed at generating results. Participants will be able to use their new knowledge and skills immediately -- to make government simpler, faster, better, and less costly.

Completion of a PDCA project and an A3 report are required to earn a Camo Belt.

(Note: White Belt / Yellow Belt training are not required as prerequisites for LeanOhio Boot Camp.)
