Government and businesses working together in harmony - that's how the Iowa Lean Consortium was formed. It's a non-profit organization intent on improving the business environment. It was formed after a coalition of Iowa manufacturers approached the state's environmental regulators in 2003 with a unique proposal. The idea was to have a kaizen event to address the backlog that businesses were experiencing in obtaining permits. The resulting event and process evolved into the Iowa Lean Government Collaborative and ultimately into the Iowa Lean Consortium. And it's been quite successful. Learn how bringing the private and public sectors together can maximize the power of lean and benefit all sectors of the economy.
In this presentation:
- Bring government and business together to smooth the way forward.
- Apply lean thinking to business and government.
- Make regulation more efficient by applying lean tools.
- Bring ideas and lean thinking to problems.
- Think of government regulations as part of the process and apply lean.
