I'm looking for an example of a change management plan when deploying a new Lean program. Does anyone have any suggestions for developing and deploying a plan? Better to do in-house or consultant?

I have found Microsoft Visio to be the easiest to work with. However, there is a subscription fee.

I am a former 23-year staff member at ICMA who made the leap to local government 2 years ago. I am the internal audit manager at the City of Aurora, CO. IA may not sound much like process improvement, but our approach here is summed up in our mission statement: "We are partners for performance improvement." Looking forward to these conversations as well.

I am a Process & Project Coordinator at Coconino County, Arizona. I look forward to engaging in Process Improvement discussions with the group.

The City & County of Denver's (CCD) Peak Academy teaches Lean tools & concepts to employees, and offers non-CCD organizations the chance to send their employees through the classes as well. To date, over 70 participants from 42 non-CCD organizations have taken our weeklong training, and over 2000 CCD employees have received some training and identified over $13.7M in savings.

All of our training materials are available on our website, We've opened up a full session the week of August 4th to non-CCD participants. If you are interested, contact us at!

If any of you is from Florida (our membership covers from Collier up the west and center to Polk and Pasco), we have the Florida Process Improvement Network. We meet quarterly to learn from, and network with, each other. William Follette could not have described it better - there is a general and historic lack of process focus and it begins with changing the culture. Until then, all we can do is apply the most relevant methodologies, provide solid analysis, and make sound recommendations.
Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!

I need some help with Six Sigma Green Belt certification. I could really use some practice problems & answers. If possible, it would be great to get some coaching from an experienced Green Belt or Black Belt.
