Commitment

LTS was contracted to design and guide a five year province-wide Lean Six Sigma implementation and training program that concluded in 2015.

Project Work

LTS led the development, design, and implementation of a four year capacity-building program for Manitoba Health. This ambitious province-wide program included leadership training and consultation, as well as a training and mentorship program to create Green and Black Belt level personnel to manage quality improvement projects all over the province.

The project covered all regions and agencies of Manitoba Health, which have a total operational budget in excess of 4.4 billion dollars, and will continue once LTS is no longer involved. Worked with every level of the organization including all regional CEOs, CFOs, leadership teams, ministry staff and deputy ministers.


Outcomes

LTS helped lead the Manitoba Health team of more than 37,000 staff to achieve savings of over $14 million, reduced patient waiting days by 1.2 million, and reduced over 1 million processing days. This has been achieved based on extensive operational knowledge of government operations and experience with the Manitoba Health environment. More on project outcomes can be found here, on Accreditation Canada’s website, and below.
