Hats off to the Environmental Protection Agency - A Government Model for LEAN

For those of us involved with "LEAN" it is easy to understand the challenges that come from starting a process improvement program from the ground floor. I would like to personally thank the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), for providing such a great model for all government agencies to follow. There website is a great resource, packed full with examples of how they are applying "LEAN" principles, and even give a free download for their "Lean in Government Starter Kit."

To all at the EPA - I salute you for being the leaders you have shown yourselves to be, and thank you for helping government agencies, the world over, rethink the way they do business.

Here is a link to their "Lean in Government Starter Kit."
