Community of Practice

Our purpose

Results Washington recently established the Enterprise-wide Lean and Continuous Improvement Community of Practice in alignment with Governor Inslee’s executive order 13-04 as a platform for continuous improvement (CI) practitioners to:

  • Share knowledge, experience and expertise to help others
  • Obtain continuous improvement strategies and resources
  • Receive support on any CI efforts their organization or agency is or may be implementing
  • Continue fostering a CI culture throughout the state that helps us reduce inefficiencies and produce quality products and services for all citizens

Join the Community!

The Community meets every third Tuesday of the month at 10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. These meetings are optional and open to all who would like to attend. To join the distribution list, click the button below!
