The Department of Management, Office of Lean Enterprise offers Lean courses to promote a mindset of continuous improvement in order to make government services easier, faster, better and less costly. Courses provide training on Lean methodology and tools which assist in problem solving, removing inefficiencies and achieving results.
Courses focus on:
- Introducing ways to improve individual's daily work processes
- Appling a standard structured approach for small teams solving simpler problems
- Facilitating teams through larger, more strategic problem solving
Lean courses are currently being revamped to offer a hybrid of self-paced videos with hands-on application practice followed by a virtual class session. Be sure to check back often as new courses are added.
