In August 2011 the OCS began to prepare people throughout state government to adopt LEAN principles in the state's continuous improvement efforts. LEAN is a philosophy and a set of tools which help agencies focus on business processes to maximize customer value while minimizing roadblocks. OCS offers training on LEAN thinking to teach participants the basic components of the LEAN toolbox and prepare them to identify process improvement opportunities in their own agencies and to facilitate LEAN events. A monthly roundtable to enable LEAN practitioners to network and extend their learning about LEAN supplements the training. OCS also facilitates LEAN events within F&A and is available to support state agencies interested in conducting their own events. Contact OCS for more information about the LEAN effort.
