Lean Government

Denton’s LEAN Journey applies methodologies proven in manufacturing, health care, service industries and even government, to remove redundant and inefficient processes and enhance skills to provide outstanding customer service. This program empowers employees to find solutions, develop programs, and enhance processes that result in service improvements and cost savings.
 

Our city is experiencing tremendous growth. It’s visible and palpable. In fact, Denton is on track to have a 65 percent increase in population to over 200,000 by 2030. This growth will place great demands on the entire organization, from utilities to public safety, recreation and leisure to general government services.  To meet this demand, we intend to have controlled growth in our capabilities by innovating and reinventing ourselves rather than just adding equipment, staff, and layers of bureaucracy. By applying methodologies proven in manufacturing, health care, service industries and even government, LEAN practices draw upon employees to remove redundant and inefficient processes and enhance skills to provide outstanding customer service. This work is rewarding, meaningful, and creates a better community. This is Denton’s LEAN Journey.
