The Military and Six Sigma: The Mark of Excellence

There are many government agencies that use and practice Six Sigma methodologies. From the Federal Bureau of Investigation to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the Six Sigma methodology is alive and well among these important organizations. It is also an important part of our armed forces.

What is the significance of this? These important government agencies use Six Sigma because it works. When you really get down to it, the only way to be really efficient and save an organization money is to implement the various tools and methodologies that Six Sigma offers.

Once the preliminary work and analysis (DMAIC) has been done, what is left is a very specific, concerted working model that is as close to perfection as possible – a specific approach to accomplish “set” goals.

Every step has a reason to lead to the next step. There aren’t any unnecessary steps. We see this through effective time management, which ultimately saves money and creates efficiency.

Let’s take our armed forces. The military deals with the safety and defense of our nation on a global scale. Absolutely nothing can be left up to chance. Every effort has to be put forth in a very specific, concise and organized matter to maximize readiness and capacity of the team or troop.

In fact, the tools used in Six Sigma, along with its methodology can be found in any successful organization or company. You’ll notice that the organization or company runs with extreme precision, with the ultimate goal of reducing error, improving productivity, or increasing the bottom line. Leaders and managers are very involved participants, not just ominous figures sitting at their desk raddling off orders.

So when you see an organization with these outlined characteristics, you know you are looking at the Six Sigma mark of excellence. Learn more information about 6Sigma.com’s Lean Six Sigma training coursework, available as classroom, onsite, or online options.
