Minnesota governor visits General Mills

We were honored to have Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton recently pay us a visit here at General Mills. Over the course of a few hours, several employees briefed the governor about company initiatives that target efficiency, learning and continuous improvement.

General Mills is transferring knowledge and best practices in these areas to the state of Minnesota through an innovative public/private partnership supporting the state’s “Enterprise LEAN business process improvement initiative,” which helps the state improve service and cut costs.

The partnership has already paid dividends for the state, generating millions in savings. You can read more about Gov. Dayton’s visit on
