About Lean
By learning to adapt Lean principles, methods, and tools to state government operations, we are striving to create a way of working that will deliver better value to more Washingtonians for generations to come and make public service a rewarding experience. Our Lean transformation efforts help Washington state government leaders and employees pursue answers to questions that will drive transformation in five general areas:
1. Value Driven Purpose – What is our purpose? What problem are we trying to solve? What value do we want to create?
2. Process Improvement – How do we improve the actual work?
3. People Development – How do we develop the people?
4. Leadership/Management – What role must leadership take and how does the management system support the new way of working?
5. Mindset/Assumptions – What basic thinking or assumptions underlie this transformation?
