Lean Six Sigma

Our Strategy

As the Armys single Human Resource integrator, the G-1 / M&RA must provide Human Capital Management processes that are ever more useful, relevant, and valued in the eyes of the Warfighter and their families. To meet this challenge, the G-1 / M&RA must transform its business processes to become more streamlined, agile, and efficient. The G-1 / M&RA have selected Lean Six Sigma (LSS) as the key enabler of these efforts within our organization.

The goal is to promote workforce development (people), provide necessary infrastructure to support Continuous Process Improvement efforts (process management), and define the framework for transforming the delivery of personnel support to the Warfighter (projects). Success requires the G-1 / M&RA to harness/gain commitment and dedication from each and every member of the organization.
