LeanOhio Bootcamp

LeanOhio Boot Camp is an intensive week-long training that gets people learning and using Lean methods and tools. The entire program is tailored to the public-sector workplace and public-sector processes. 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. 

The training is filled with government examples and exercises. Included is an in-depth simulation involving a prototypical agency, so participants build their toolkits by way of a real-world situation. Its perfect for people who work in government in an Ohio city, township, county, school district, or other governmental agency or organization.

Scholarships are available through the Local Government Efficiency Program. Click here for information. Participants should have support from their organization leadership to attend -- and then to apply Lean concepts and tools in their workplace.
