Iowa and Lean, Once Again


Making Iowa more business friendly a goal for lawmakers

Iowa sure pops up quite a bit in the lean news, between Maytag and Pella, and Gov. Tom Vilsack's promotion of lean.

In this case, the Governor is trying to help promote lean throughout the state, including his own government (thanks to the Gemba Panta Rei blog).

Vilsack's plan also includes creating the Lean Manufacturing Institute, which would provide training for Iowa's manufacturers. The training would help companies focus on methods of reducing inventory, on-time delivery and higher productivity.
