Business Case

Continuous Improvement offers JGI the opportunity to strengthen their operations and achieve their overall mission of efficiently producing science in support of Bioenergy, Carbon Cycling, and Biogeochemistry.  By improving and making more reliable and reproducible work processes, we will be able to give more time and resources to do more high-impact science across JGI and deliver a better user experience.

Project Statement

Continuous improvement efforts are contained within specific departments of the JGI and are dependent on Six Sigma and Lean training or experience of employees.  Providing a continuous improvement resource across the organization and sharing this knowledge base with more employees will have an impact on the opportunity to effect change at the JGI.

Objective Statement

  • Identify, lead, and conduct efficiency improvement projects across all areas of JGI that result in faster processes, reduced waste, and cost savings.
  • Introduce and employ Six Sigma methodology and tools to drive the efficiency improvement projects.

  • Empower employees to identify process improvements and serve as a resource to facilitate efficiency projects from inception to implementation.


Project Scope

This team will be responsible for identifying and leading continuous improvement projects in all areas of the JGI business where they can improve efficiency and reduce cost.  The team will evaluate recommendations for improvements provided by various departments,  prioritize, and lead working groups to implement optimization that aligns with the overall organization's budget and programmatic goals.
