Geographic Information Systems integrate spatial data (maps) and tabular data (databases) through computer technology.
This dataset contains summary information on completion of LEAN classroom and virtual courses by Commonwealth of Pennsylvania employees in support of the Governor’s initiative: “Government that works.”
Lean is a systematic approach to reduce or eliminate activities that don't add value to the process. This approach is based on a set of principles which focuses on customer and encourages a workplace culture of employee engagement and respect for those who do the work. It’s about developing a mindset of continuous improvement and leveraging the knowledge of front-line staff, our subject matter experts, to identify incremental improvements that add up over time.
Governor Wolf is seeking to streamline state services to make them easier, better, and faster to the benefit of the citizens of PA through adopting a Lean culture in PA agencies. The goal is to increase efficiency, remove waste, and to rethink how we do business to improve state services and better meet the needs of our diverse customer base.
While Lean found its roots in a manufacturing environment, specifically through the Toyota Production System (TPS), the concepts and tools and have been successfully applied across all industries. Having previously implemented Lean in his private business, Governor Wolf is currently working with commonwealth agencies to embrace Lean at an enterprise level and ensure front line employees have a voice to challenge the old way of doing business.”
This is a connection to Philadelphia's open data portal - OpenDataPhilly.org - built by Azavea, a Philadelphia-based geospatial software firm. OpenDataPhilly is based on the idea that providing free and easy access to data information encourages better and more transparent government and a more engaged and knowledgeable citizenry.
OpenDataPhilly is a catalog of open data about the Philadelphia region. It includes more than 300 data sets, applications and APIs from many organizations in the region, including from City government. A full list of datasets shared by Philadelphia’s municipal government can be found here: https://www.opendataphilly.org/organization/city-of-philadelphia
The website enables users to search for and locate data sets based on keyword and category searches. For each data set, application, or API, the website includes accompanying information about the origins, update frequency, and other specifics of the data. The record for each data source also includes links for downloading the data or accessing the application or API.

This is a connection to the Western Pennsylvania Regional Data Center in Pittsburgh, to the Pennsylvania Open Data Portal.
The Western Pennsylvania Regional Data Center provides a shared technological and legal infrastructure to support research, analysis, decision making, and community engagement. It was created in 2015 and is managed by the University of Pittsburgh Center for Urban and Social Research, in partnership with Allegheny County and the City of Pittsburgh. The Data Center would not be possible without the trust of our partners and support from the Richard King Mellon Foundation, The Heinz Endowments, and the University of Pittsburgh.
The University Center has long served as a community information intermediary in Allegheny County. Information intermediaries help people find and use information to improve their communities. The Data Center is one in a long line of initiatives of the University Center in this intermediary role. From 2005-2014, the Center operated the Pittsburgh Neighborhood and Community Information System, is home to the Pittsburgh Today regional indicators initiative, and recently launched the Southwestern Pennsylvania Community Profiles community indicators project.
Over time, the University Center realized that the broader use of data in the region was inhibited by the lack of a legal infrastructure, technologies that did not support the dissemination of raw data, incomplete data documentation, and a lack of capacity for managing information in a fragmented political environment. The Data Center provides this infrastructure while institutionalizing the role of a data intermediary within a regional open data infrastructure. In 2013 and 2014, we wrote about our early open data experiences in a two part series (part one, part two).
We are often asked by people in other cities to talk more about the Regional Data Center. We’re happy to do so, and we find that everyone gets the most out of these conversations by first reviewing our document containing lots of background information about the project.
We are a proud partner in the National Neighborhood Indicators Partnership.
