Improving Performance with Lean Six Sigma

Miami-Dade County is committed to improving performance across all operations by applying effective problem-solving techniques. One of the many strategies the County uses is called Lean Six Sigma.

Lean Six Sigma emphasizes facts and relies on data-driven tools to streamline processes, increase productivity and deliver work of high quality. Lean Six Sigma is used to improve important outcomes; it helps "move the needle" on key performance measures.

Miami-Dade County has been using Lean Six Sigma techniques in several departments. Recently-completed performance improvement projects can be viewed, including those completed with Lean Six Sigma techniques.
