Presentation Description: The U.S. Intelligence Community (IC) is increasingly adopting Lean Six Sigma (LSS) as a tool to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of their unique functions within the U.S. government.  From payroll and purchase requests to the actual collection and analysis of intelligence, LSS is making an impact with how these organizations operate.

This presentation is intended to show you how organizations with unique processes and procedures compared to commercial manufacturing or service-oriented firms have successfully adopted many of the tools and principles of LSS successfully.
