El Paso, Texas to Expand Lean Six Sigma Training

 El Paso City Manager, Tommy Gonzalez, proposed a budget that allocated $50,000 for Lean Six Sigma training. He said, “When it comes to government efficiency, there are multitudes of skeptics and naysayers. However, streamlining operations, achieving cost savings and improving service are all within reach for any public-sector agency.”

Pothole repairs were the public works department’s focus. Examining the processes and how employees were being utilized led the team to develop consistent processes and improve overall operating procedures.

The results were:

  • 40% increase in the number of weekly repairs (from 200 to 280)
  • 14% reduction in program costs
  • 24% jump in overall production
  • 50% reduction in employee data management
  • $200,000 in annual savings is expected
