Governor Greitens Appointing a COO to Wring Out Cost Savings

Interesting article about Greitens appointing a McKinsey consultant to act as COO (Chief Operating Officer) for the state.  The idea is to find cost savings and overall efficiency.

How can we apply this to finding cost savings for the City and County?  Can standardized processes for typical city and county processes be found under the current structure?  Can this be used as a stepping stone to eventually consolidate and standardize delivery of these services?
