Minnesota Office of Continuous Improvement

The Minnesota Continuous Improvement Office (MNCI) is a coordinated initiative for improving organizational performance and results in Minnesota state government.

MNCI has a simple goal of helping state government work better for its customers and employees using time-tested continuous improvement methodologies, including Lean and Six Sigma tools and philosophies.

These training courses are available to only public sector employees, including state, federal and local governments.

As of July 2015, MNCI's training registration will be transitioning from Eventbrite to the State of Minnesota's Enterprise Learning Management system. More information will be available in late May 2015.
