    • Topic: Starting the Second Decade of Quality, Improvement, and Innovation at CDOT!
    • Abstract:
        • In 2011, Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper promised to improve state government,

        • Noting that " ... making government more effective, efficient and elegant means listening to our state employees and learning from them how we can do better ...".

        • And, back in 2011, Governor Hickenlooper continued that " ... we initiated

          the Lean program in almost every state agency, where employee teams are now actively identifying waste and inefficiency to create savings ... "

        • At the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), we took that commitment very seriously during the First Decade of Quality, Improvement, and Innovation.

        • To make that a reality, we combined the principles and practices of Lean quality improvement with the principles and practices of change management to make CDOT's services more effective, efficient, and customer-focused.

        • And, we are redoubling our efforts as we start the Second Decade of Quality, Improvement, and Innovation, at CDOT

        • come hear about all of that on Thursday, October 27!
    • Gary Vansuch describes himself this way:
        • I am the most fortunate person on the planet:

        • I have a wonderful wife, and we are in our 43rd year of marriage;

        • And two terrific grown children who are making important contributions to society in education and science.

        • I am honored to lead the Very Best Team on the Planet;

        • I have the Very Best Job on Earth as the Director of Process Improvement at the Colorado Department of Transportation.
