Abstract: [This abstract is based on the authors' abstract.]
The quality management structure of the Columbus Consolidated Government is detailed through the development and implementation of a special project team in a division of the Public Services Department. The team's objective was to study and improve the response time necessary to repair road cave-ins, using a variety of quality improvement tools to analyze process data. Recommendations from the team significantly reduced work crew response time. Lessons learned in implementing a quality initiative in a public organization are discussed.
