8 Keys To Winning With Lean in State and Local Government

Proven Approaches That Will Work in Your City, Town, County or State Agency

A Two-Hour Leadership Briefing in Boston, Massachusetts

Lean isn’t just about “less costs.” It’s about “More.”

More simplicity, greater speed of service, more capacity, higher levels of customer satisfaction…and, of course, less operational costs. Many public sector agencies have struggled by focusing on the latter first.  Learn how the State of Ohio adapted Lean to their public sector environment with great success – and how that success is carrying over to towns and counties across the State.

Join us for a two-hour leadership briefing on Thursday August 13 from 10:00 a.m. to noon.  The briefing will be led by Steve Wall, a nationally recognized expert on process improvement in government. Steve is an insider – a career-long public servant who served on two Governor’s Cabinets and worked with thousands of people at all levels of state government in directing programs that saved taxpayers over $700 million

The cost for the briefing is $99 per person. Click here to register.  Or call Orion at (800) 510-2117.
