Welcome to the Minnesota Office of Continuous Improvement!

The Minnesota Office of Continuous Improvement (MNCI) is the State's central office for Continuous Improvement (CI), supporting the CI efforts of the 24 cabinet-level executive branch agencies. Our mission is to improve Minnesota state government services every day by solving problems that change lives. We do this by leading and supporting our State government agencies as they build a culture of CI and capacity for implementing CI projects in their day-to-day business practices. We use time-tested CI tools and methodologies, including Lean, Six Sigma, Total Quality Management, and more to empower employees and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of government services for Minnesotans.
