Going Lean in Government and Education

March 29
11AM PT, 2PM ET
Duration: 1 hour

As the budget crisis and citizen demands reach a critical peak in 2011, stymied government and education leaders are at a crossroads as they search for ways to do more with less. Without a doubt, economic pressures are transpiring that will forever alter public sector. The good news is that these same pressures initiate innovation and organizational change. Enter LEAN. With Lean, organizations look closely at current processes to find and trim the inefficiencies that eat away at resources. When you consider that labor is government and education’s largest operational cost, a closer inspection of Workforce Management processes like time and attendance, absence management and scheduling are wise places to apply Lean principles first.

Join GOVERNING on Tuesday, March 29 at 2pm eastern for an interactive roundtable discussion on one of the instrumental lean solutions that saved the manufacturing and is starting to turn around government and education. Featured participants include Ken Miller, author of “We Don’t Make Widgets: Overcoming the Myths That Keep Government from Radically Improving”, and representatives from Quinnipiac University and the City and County of Denver who have executed these processes and are experiencing the immense results of the solutions of a leaner government.

As a participant in this online roundtable discussion, you will learn:

  • What it means to have a lean organization
  • Who is using lean methods and how can their process be duplicated to work for you
  • How to find and replace workforce management inefficiencies
  • How to improve your services without additional resources
  • How to make your budgets go further
