The federal deficit has ballooned to record numbers. Never before has lean been more important to government. With a undeniable need to drop future spending, unless we want services to drop along with it, we will have to deliver more with less. It’s just that simple. But government (federal, states, and local) needs to start now.
Some champions of lean in government have started a conference to bring together lean government champions. I am honored to be asked to deliver a keynote. If you are in government, or you know someone that is, we would love to have you this June 9-11 in Des Moines, Iowa for the Lean Government Exchange conference. Check it out here.
