Lean Six Sigma is a process improvement methodology which provides a framework for projects intended to eliminate waste, improve efficiency, and allow for better use of resources in daily processes. The well-established methodology has been in use by various industries across the country since the early 1990’s. By conducting Lean Six Sigma projects internally, the city strives to improve services for both our citizens and our employees.
Lean Six Sigma certification is tiered by levels of expertise in the methodology as follows:
White Belt → Yellow Belt → Green Belt → Black Belt → Master Black Belt
City employees may choose to complete a Lean Six Sigma certification and subsequently lead process improvement projects. There are currently more than 30 certified staff members, spanning every department.
