Making state government in Ohio simpler, faster, better, and less costly. .
LeanOhio Overview
Here’s how the LeanOhio Office is making government simpler, faster, better, and less costly.

Major Process Improvement
Consultants from the LeanOhio Office lead major process-improvement events. In 5-day Kaizen events, teams transform key processes -- eliminating red tape, removing bottlenecks, reducing process time, strengthening service, and saving money. Since January 2011, LeanOhio has led nearly 70 Kaizen events.
Six Sigma Consultation

LeanOhio consultants assist agencies in using Lean Six Sigma tools to find major improvement opportunities (through value-stream mapping), mistake-proof their forms (poka-yoke), reorganize the workspace (5S), analyze data, hear from customers, and more.
Training and Development
The LeanOhio Office has a robust program of training, development, and mentoring. Offerings include LeanOhio Boot Camp (1 week), Green Belt Training (2 weeks + project), and Black Belt Training (5 weeks + project).
LeanOhio Network
The LeanOhio Network unites State employees who have attended LeanOhio training. The group is 700 people strong, with 70 Black Belts and 170 Green Belts as of December 2015. Among state governments, Ohio leads the nation with the most in-house Lean expertise.
Entrepreneur in Residence
The EIR Program has three small-business owners working with the LeanOhio Office. This is bridge-building at its best. EIRs and their businesses gain process-improvement know-how, and state government gains private-sector insights and best practices.
Lean in Local Government
Designed for Ohio’s political subdivisions, the Local Government Efficiency Program includes scholarships for training and grants for improvement projects. The training is tailored to the public-sector workplace.
Improvement Resources
To power new thinking and higher levels of improvement, the LeanOhio Office routinely adds to its library of improvement resources.
