District of Columbia Centralized Lean Six Sigma Program

The purpose of this program is to enhance the professionalism of the District’s managers and its public administrators and provide them with the tools for effective leadership in the current and future environments.

Training focuses on improving customer service to the Districts internal and external customers. The services are used to train multiple city-wide teams that, once trained, research and evaluate various processes self-identified by District Agencies or indicated through customer service feedback as overly complex, burdensome, taking too much time, an unnecessary duplication of efforts, misaligned with customer needs or purpose, or resulting in unreliable or inconsistent outcomes. The inefficient processes identified by the Agencies serve as “projects” for the citywide teams to apply and demonstrate their understanding of the Lean Six Sigma methodology.
