Ready for Take Off!
Welcome to the Launch Kern Blog. This blog will provide updates on Launch Kern’s progress as it grows in Kern County. We will highlight County departments and staff as they make process improvements that make their jobs easier, County processes faster and/or better, and achieve cost savings.
To date, our consultant, Scott Thor, has trained over 200 County Leaders that each attended two full-day workshops. These leaders learned the basic principles of Lean Six Sigma and how to be a Lean Six Sigma leader in order to empower their staff to implement process improvement projects.
As we move into our next phase, we intended to train up to 500 more County employees over the next 12 months.
If you are a County employee interested in attending a workshop, contact your immediate supervisor or Department Head for approval to participate in one our twelve (12) upcoming workshops.
