What is the New Hampshire Lean Network?
The Lean Network is made up of state and local agencies that use
Lean techniques for process improvement. It is the mission of the
Lean Network to promote and support the use of Lean process improvement
throughout New Hampshire. Upon inception, we opted to discuss best
practices and lessons learned while letting the culture of our
individual agencies shape our program.
- To provide Lean networking and information sharing opportunities
- To provide Lean enrichment and other training opportunities
- To promote the dissemination of continuous improvement Lean best practices
While rotating the logistics of the meeting site each quarter, the host agency
conducts a value added or a learning component in addition to the old and new
business discussed. Generally, we meet on the 3rd Friday of September, December,
March and June, from 1:30pm-3:30pm - to confirm the date, time and place of
each Lean Network meeting, refer to the calendar on the Lean homepage.
Lean is not just about working harder — we are working smarter. One
phrase you won't hear in an event or network meeting is "We've always
done it that way." As new agencies join us, we are collectively reminded
of why we conduct Lean events. We aim for process progression in terms
of time, money and morale. Not only can we say it's working — we can
prove it because Lean is data driven to better serve our customers!
