            It would be un-lean for public administrators to start from scratch implementing Lean initiatives when there is so much to learn from existing endeavors. Lean seeks standard work. Fifty states and thousands of municipalities conduct similar processes. What can be learned from the... experiences of others on the Lean journey? A Public-Sector Journey to Lean describes the application of Lean process improvement principles and techniques to governmental organizations. The core concepts are illustrated by using specific examples drawn from Lean initiatives, particularly those underway in New England. Each chapter identifies the challenges faced by public sector in the development of a Lean program. Common pitfalls are discussed frankly, along with a range of potential countermeasures. Examples of projects and profiles of Lean practitioners are interspersed to illustrate the lessons learned. While acknowledging the practical differences between for-profit and non-profit enterprises, this book demonstrates that principles of Lean apply equally as well to all sectors. The Appendices provide a curriculum for White, Yellow, and Green Belt training programs. The hands-on approach to Lean training includes hypothetical scenarios that can be used to simulate Kaizen mapping projects.

            Even today with quality improvement the battle cry of American industry, the quality programs in most companies are limited to conformance to technical standards , according to quality expert Bradley Gale. While some have ventured a step farther to measure customer satisfaction, ...few of them, Gale demonstrates, have attempted to track market-perceived quality -- how buyers select among competing suppliers, why orders are won or lost, and which competitors are succeeding in which market segments. Using cases including Milliken & Company, AT&T, United Van Lines, and Gillette, Gale shows how leading-edge companies have gone beyond the minimal achievements of conformance quality and customer satisfaction to focus on the third, higher stage, market-perceived quality versus competitors and aspire to an emerging fourth stage, true strategic management . Drawing on his extensive research at AT&T, Johnson & Johnson, Parke-Davis, and other world-class companies, Gale provides new metrics for market-perceived quality that are straightforward and easy to interpret. His set of seven integrative tools for customer value analysis makes up the heart of the war room wall to help guide business-unit teams in their effort to outperform competitors in satisfying customers. The great value of these tools is that they are derived from a future-oriented strategic navigation system that tracks competitive information and market-perceived quality. Learning to master this system accelerates customer satisfaction from a slogan to a science and leads ultimately to true strategic management-- the fourth stage of Total Quality Management. The processes described in this book provide an insider's perspective on the criteria of the Baldrige Award. Bradley Gale's insights and innovative methods for defining, measuring, and improving market-perceived quality will create an entirely new thrust for the worldwide quality movement.
