WASHINGTON (Army News Service, Nov. 25, 2009) - Eleven Army organizations were recognized for their exceptional efforts in using Lean Six Sigma principles and practices in a ceremony Nov. 24 at the Pentagon's Hall of Heroes.

Lt. Gen. Robert E. Durbin, special assistant to the Army chief of staff for Enterprise Management, presented the second annual Army LSS Recognition and Awards to team representatives, praising the recipients for "providing the innovation, business savvy and continuous drive to improve the way the Army operates."

The winners were selected by a team of eight Army and civilian LSS experts. Winners received plaques and certificates signed by the secretary of the Army and the chief of staff of the Army. They were presented by Durbin and Joyce E. Morrow, special administrative assistant to the secretary of the Army.

Durbin said the Army today has a full cadre of trained and certified LSS practitioners. He said since June 2006, the Army had trained more than 1,450 senior leaders in LSS methodologies.

"Collectively, the Lean Six Sigma community has completed nearly 5,000 projects," Durbin said. "There are over 1,800 in progress, and all tallied, the Army has saved almost $14 billion which simply could not have been achieved without the experience and know-how of this esteemed group."
