Lean Everyday Ideas

Lean Everyday Ideas Logo
Everyone at CDOT is encouraged to identify opportunities to make improvements to their workplaces and work processes, every day. These Lean Everyday Ideas (LEI) are innovations and improvements where one person (or a small group of people) will: identify a problem or opportunity; develop an innovative way of doing something better to solve that problem or seize upon that opportunity; implement the improvement, and let others know about it so that they can "borrow" the innovation, too! These innovations and ideas are the embodiment of "everyone, every day, improving every process and every product, to benefit every customer." 

In 2018, the LEI Program was named a Top 25program for the Innovation in American Government Award by the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation at Harvard University!
