  3. Marketing Plan – Continued discussion on how we can get employee buy in.  Lisa M spoke at recent department head meeting and let them know that it doesn’t have to be a large event; even reorganizing a desk can be a LEAN event.  The departments’ biggest issue was having the time to LEAN.

Some members said that if the event doesn’t directly affect them that they don’t really care that someone cleaned their desk. 

We looked at the everyone drive for Social Services; there are a lot of files that haven’t been opened for many years.  Lisa M wants to schedule an event of to clean the SSEveryone drive out.

  1. Reviewed CI website and looked a possible training opportunities for the CO$T CREW.  Also looked at the LEAN AMC site and our page on the Wabasha County Website.  A lot of updating is needed on the website.  Katie now has access to make these changes; Lisa M will forward those changes to Katie to update.

Time sheet Event: Katie spoke of how much easier payroll is now with the standardized timesheet for most departments, except Highway and Sheriff’s office.  Katie will put together a report for Lisa M to look over and submit to the HR for the newsletter and to put out on the LEAN page of the website.
