The MWCC will host the Maryland Lean Government Conference to provide an overview of lean and lean government, case study examples of lean government, a description of services offered by the Consortia, and tips for getting started.

Governments at all levels across the country are struggling to maintain services that are responsive, high quality, and low cost.  Maryland is no exception.  The financial pressure to do more with less has never been greater than it is today.  Government officials and employees are using all the tools they know to close the gap.  But most have yet to learn about an approach that private industry has been using for years – an approach that can produce dramatic results: Lean Government. 

What is “lean government”?

Lean government is lean principles and tools applied to the processes of government.  As in other sectors public and private, lean helps government leaders and employees in a number of ways:

  • Map their processes and better understand how they work
  • Quickly identify problems and implement improvements
  • Build a culture of continuous improvement

Lean is a systematic method of improving service to customers/constituents, increasing the capacity of government, and lowering costs.  Lean has documented dramatic benefits across all branches of government (executive, judicial, legislative), all functions (administration, education, law enforcement, public works), and all levels (federal, state, county, local).
