Improving Organizational Performance through ”Lean”
Like any leading organization, public sector departments and agencies must continuously transform, not for the sake of change but to keep pace with a fast paced environment and to remain relevant to stakeholders.
In its 8th report, the Public Service Advisory Committee noted that:
“Lean is as much an attitude to organizing work as it is a specific set of tools or prescriptions. And while no one would suggest organizing the Public Service just like a private sector enterprise, many governments have adopted “lean” practices. The Federal Public Service can continue to learn from cases where managers and employees have increased the value of their programs and services by doing things more efficiently. What’s more, this approach addresses other concerns raised by employees such as the need for greater empowerment and, generally, cutting red tape”.
PPX is pleased to offer a learning event focused on “lean” and including case studies from two public sector organizations that have adopted lean practices.
The workshop will include:
- A ‘primer’ on “Lean” and including myths/truths and critical success factors;
- Case studies from two public sector organizations that are using “Lean” to support business transformation and achieve better outcomes; and
- Plenty of time for discussion!
