Lean Six Sigma is quickly gaining popularity among Defense and civilian agencies. It started as a tool for improving manufacturing in car factories. Now it has morphed into a symbol of corporate efficiency. In the recent years, Lean Six Sigma has turned into the latest government catchphrase for eliminating waste and reducing errors.
It is believed that in the next two to five years, there will be a significant increased push in the civilian agencies to adopt these approaches.

Most organizations implementing Lean Six Sigma focus on training leaders with the expectation of getting them on board before launching a broader initiative.
