State of Washington Archives: on Government Reform


Jay Inslee: Lean management: bring disruptive change to Olympia

I heard a clear and powerful message on Election Day. The people are tired of a state government that doesn't change with the times. Today we begin a multi-year effort to bring disruptive change to Olympia. With authentic, courageous leadership, we will bring the principles of Lean management to all of state government, following the lead of Boeing and a growing number of state and local governments: replace rhetoric with quantifiable results. But this effort is about more than measurement. It's about instituting a culture shift that will endure. Moving forward, all state agencies will be rooted in the same three principles:
  1. We will measure success by the results we produce, not the money we put in.
  2. We will know our customers and what they value.
  3. Every agency will adopt a unique process for continual improvement that engages our state employees.
Change is coming to Olympia, and I want all state employees to be active partners in it.
