Webcast: Lean Gahanna

Jennifer Teal, City Administrator - City of Gahanna

The Lean Gahanna program is modeled on the state's LeanOhio program, which has a mission to make government services simpler, faster, better and less costly. Using continuous improvement methods such as Lean and Six Sigma, Gahanna City programs and departments will be empowered to cut the proverbial "red tape," remove inefficiencies, improve customer service and achieve measurable results. The City of Gahanna will also be poised to provide services and training resources to other local public sector partners, such as the townships, schools and neighboring communities.
