In Business

Civilization as we know it can be described as an exploration into finding new and better ways to do things.  Courageous individuals have launched a path throughout human history by going off and finding out what’s around the next corner… and what’s just beyond what we already know.  This is exactly what our 10 newly trained Green Belts are doing.  They are unaccepting of the status quo and taking the challenge to solve problems that have endured too long without scrutiny.  As of April 20, Kern County’s 10 newest green belts begin their journey to solve problems related to key areas that will positively influence services to residents, internal savings and efficacy, and employee morale in the following areas:

  • Reducing the volume of wood waste going to County landfills
  • Improving Information Technology services for legal services
  • Reducing the cycle time of board letter approvals
  • Improving processes in the Library system
  • Reducing Behavioral Health patient no-show rates
  • Improving the cycle time for payroll and hiring certifications
  • Reducing the time it takes to issue purchase orders
  • Improving processes in the juvenile justice system
  • Reducing audit cycle time
  • Reducing purchase card processing time

We look forward to providing the public and Board of Supervisors with a full presentation of these projects at the end of 2018.
