Presentation Description: The application of LSS tools in a service-oriented organization such as the Soldier Training Support Program (STSP) differs greatly from the application of those same tools within the manufacturing industry.   The U.S. Army is increasingly adopting Lean Six Sigma (LSS) as a tool to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of its unique training support functions.  From organizing a training team and instructing soldiers on new weapons platforms and simulators, to conducting live-fire training exercises in preparation for combat operations, LSS is making an impact with how training programs are planned, organized and delivered.  This presentation is intended to demonstrate how service-oriented organizations with unique processes and procedures have successfully adopted various LSS methodologies, and offers participants an opportunity to de-construct an actual project and analyze the use of LSS tools and principles.  Much like an Armchair Quarterback after the big game, attendees will be asked to provide a �Coulda-Woulda-Shoulda�  post game analysis and describe how they would have done things differently.
