GDF officers adopts Lean Six Sigma methodologies

Senior Officers of the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) on Thursday last received certificates for their participation in a series of Lean Six Sigma – Rapid Improvement Methodology Workshops, at a simple ceremony held at Base Camp Ayanganna on Thursday last.

The GDF has embraced the Methodology as part of its transformation efforts and top and middle level mangers collectively participated in the two-phased series of sessions during which they employed its various tools and techniques to achieve several of the army’s strategic objectives, a press release from the GDF said. The sessions were facilitated by Owen Ramsay, an ISO 9001 Quality Management System Consultant.

At the closing ceremony, Ramsay reiterated that throughout the stages the groups worked well at developing improvement projects which will impact the GDF as it undergoes its various changes. He presented 21 different Project Documents arising from the exercise to Chief of Staff, Commodore Gary Best.

In response, the Chief of Staff said that the objective is for the projects to be implemented and effect changes in the organization. Against the backdrop of the GDF’s current transformation process, he pointed out that as early as next year efforts will be made to streamline finances for implementation. Best said the sessions were refreshing and edifying both for him and the other officers.

The army’s endorsement and participation in the Lean Six Sigma Rapid Improvement Methodology Workshops indicates its dedication to constant improvement to better serve the country. Lean Six Sigma is a business management strategy that seeks to guarantee improved organizational efficiency through measurable and quantifiable returns, the release said.
