What're we going to do, have kanbans for units deploying? I'll tell you six sigma army style: one shot, one kill. That's army six sigma!
Here's a telling quote from the article:
"One challenge the graduates will have is making the lessons, which came mostly from the corporate world, relevant to the military environment..." [emphasis mine]
Score one more for the professional reservists. I took a six sigma class back in the 90s when I was at Motorola.
“The major difference is that the corporate world […]you get rewarded for saving money. In the military, you have to spend all of your money, usually in specific ways… but the lessons can be transferred with some creativity[.]"
The other thing is the call up of Israeli reservists. My first thought was, "I hope they don't call up this US reservist," but then I thought about reprisals against US forces already deployed. I don't think our deployment was fun, but I also don't think it was too hairy.
Mrs. Prop is nervous, but I'm going to say a prayer for our folks out there now.
Oh yeah, and everybody go to Illini 6. I've been posting there (seven times in the last week).
