Applied across the entire federal government, some estimate savings of $500 billion a year or $5 trillion over a ten-year period. By comparison, the “Super Committee” is tasked to save $1.5 trillion.
A focused top down driven Lean Six Sigma effort could reorient government to provide effective services, reduce the cost of government, grow our economy, accelerate job creation, and contribute towards a competitive world economy.
Corporations including General Electric, Honeywell, DuPont, Caterpillar, Danaher, Cummins Engine, Quest Diagnostics, Lockheed, Boeing, Raytheon, Textron, CSX, and Tyco have undertaken enterprise wide Lean Six Sigma programs with significant results.
Within Federal Government, efforts have included components of the DOD, IRS, NIH, GSA, Homeland Security, and V A. The impact has not been fully realized due to the lack of full involvement of leadership in both the Executive Branch and Legislative Branch.
