Lean Six Sigma for Government: An Introduction for Government Accountants and Auditors

Even for those familiar with it, Lean Six Sigma can mean different things to different people depending on the situation. Sometimes, it indicates a manufacturing technique designed to reduce waste and improve yield. Sometimes it refers to a quality department tool set. Sometimes, it seems like just part of the latest “fix-it” hype, consulting mumbo-jumbo or management flavor of the month type stuff.

Fear of the unknown and not wanting to look stupid is enough to keep most people backing away from Lean Six Sigma. However, Lean Six Sigma is a very useful body of knowledge and want to make it less daunting and intimidating for others. And Lean Six Sigma holds a wealth of techniques and approaches for squeezing the most out of any effort in the government environment.

This course is intended to provide insight, as well as a foundation for using Lean Six Sigma immediately within the accounting function of an organization–specifically, a government accounting organization. If you are a government auditor, you will find this book is full of fancy, impressive names (sometimes exotic-sounding Japanese names!) for things you already do, and you will find a few new techniques to add to your bag of tricks.

Course objectives include:

  • Define Lean/Six Sigma
  • Distinguish between philosophy, attributes, toolsets, and methodologies of Lean Six Sigma
  • Differentiate between value added and non-value added activities
  • Identify a family of performance and improvement measures for a function or organization
  • Select an appropriate Lean Six Sigma tool for a task
  • Choose appropriate tools for each phase of the DMAIC model
  • Define qualities and common goals of Kaizen events
  • Distinguish between a Lean Six Sigma project and a Lean Six Sigma program
  • Classify reasons for resistance to change
