    There is an effort going on to get support for a task force to be created by the Fed Gov’t on implementing LSS (you can learn about this at http://wh.gov/WDY ).

    Newt Gingrich has also proposed applying LSS to the Federal Government.

    What do you think? Would LSS be effective in application to the Federal Government?

    It has been less than successful in my experience. Projects orbit around soft cost savings, cost avoidance, and “improved productivity” but with little tangible results relative to throughput or cost reduction. My 2 cents.

    Wow – with all the strong opinions on this site, I never expected this question to drop like a rock.

    First Newt spends his time talking with Michael George about SS. That means if you take their combined knowledge of SS and place it on the head of a pin it is like rolling a BB (like you shot not a Black Belt) down a 4 lane highway.

    There is a basic infrastructure problem. Government people know if they get better they get smaller budgets and they do not want their budgets cut. We have a government that spends almost $2 billion per day – you tell me – do you think there is a project in that pile?

    It is difficult enough to participate with politicians I am certainly not interested in working with a politician that cannot figure out who knows what is going on and who doesn’t. I also have no intention of riding in coach rather than business class because he cannot figure it out.

    Just my opinion.
