Lean in Government Conference

by Jamie Flinchbaugh, Lean Learning Center

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.

    Having worked in government (public school) for over 31 years, I appreciate the need for lean in government. Taming the giant public bureaucracies will be daunting! When a bureaucrat is faced with a problem, the automatically do an additive process. Subtractive efficiency is not at the top of the list.

    We try to work a bit differently; we have put in a slick procurement system that rocks. That along with many other efficiencies make a gigantic difference in the delivery of support services for students and teachers.

    That’s very good and very true Mike. It is natural when there is a problem to not change the underlying process, but to invent a new process on top of the old one to “overcome” the problem. Now we have two processes where one will do.

    Never do the workaround. Fix the root problem.

    I’ll be there as part of a panel discussion. Hope to see you there, Jamie.
