Letter: Managers use Lean Six Sigma to justify staff cuts

Regarding “DOD rallies around Lean Six Sigma”: It appears to me that Lean Six Sigma is being used — in some cases, at least — to justify cutting the heart out of the workforce. It's been used to cut full-time equivalent positions in some organizations to the point that they no longer have the personnel to properly manage their workload.

It results in problems not being addressed in a timely manner. That can be costly.
