5 5 Team Approach and Activities Training on Key Concepts of Time-Based Strategy and LeanSigma® Waste, Value add, hand-off Variability Straight through, one touch disposition, quality at the source Define the Current State Flow Performance Metrics Volume and Capacity Develop and Evaluate Alternatives Simulate/Pilot or Implement Alternatives Develop Standard Work Define Implementation and Deployment Plan Report-Out to Sponsors

6 6 Current State - Process Documented current application process

7 7 State of Lead time Before After Conservative Estimate 40% Improvement– Expect greater improvement as data collected over the next few weeks

8 8 Impact / Difficulty Matrix High Impact Low Impact Low Difficulty High Difficulty Sample only: complete list and quick hits in appendix Ranked and prioritized 56 improvement ideas

9 9 Major Themes - Improvements Improved / fewer application forms Reduced process steps Reduced movement, hand-offs Combined administration steps Extra resource for typing Early completeness review Workspace organization Outreach and Communications Internal Scorecard with Process Metrics External Scorecard for public review

10 10 Goals for the Agency Speed up internal processing, fixed dating documents, developing new forms & instructions, More uniform review guidance, outreach, improved permits, tracking data Timeline – Some items initiated immediately, others ongoing. -Day 1 - eliminated some dead time, fixed dates & Admin steps. -Week 3 – Earlier Completeness review, Welcome Call/more communication, added Typing resources -Ongoing – Revised forms with clearer instructions, Tracking System Seeking to reduce average processing time from 66 days to 38 days

This leads to less re-work by both parties and will improve the overall efficiency of the process. Seeking to have 75% of applications approvable on the initial submittal vs. 35% previously
