The Current State of Government and the Military
The government and military have a fiduciary responsibility to their benefactors, citizens or taxpayers to spend their money wisely. They currently do not run lean and operate with lots of waste, in other words, fat with an expensive supply chain that is under performing. The government and military both operate systems. There systems are built to supply and protect citizens. Government and military leaders do not have a Profound Knowledge of their processes, Toyota does.
The system is complicated by politics, leaders that don’t understand the “business”, and a general malaise that things can’t get better. This leads to a bloated government and military that is not continually getting better. It leads to unhappiness within the benefactors and a general feeling by citizens that they are not doing a good job.
The Future State of Government and the Military
Lean Six Sigma creates Operational Excellence. Toyota has a full employment policy and is still able to accomplish this. I recommend that the government and military look at the excellence that can be delivered by using the tools of the Toyota Production System and Lean Six Sigma.
