How Lean Six Sigma Helped John Dugan of AMC Get Inducted to the Hall of Fame - GoLeanSixSigma.com

On February 6, 2018, John Dugan of the Army Materiel Command was recently inducted into their Hall of Fame. He attributes the commendation not only an honor for himself, but for those who he has worked with and those that have mentored him.

After retiring in 2008 as the deputy to the commander of the Tank-Automotive and Armaments Command, Dugan reflects on his time ensuring the right equipment was received at the right time for soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines throughout his career.

Utilizing his skills in continuous improvement with the toolkit of Lean Six Sigma, Dugan reduced redundant operations, improved the quality and timeliness of products and reduced overhead to help an accumulated savings of over $125M in validated costs during 2008 alone.

As a commandeering leader, Dugan assisted in the strategic management of human resources, addressing issues like underutilized talent and helping create minority co-op programs.

“I always wanted to make sure the workforce understood how their actions contributed to the joint warfighter,” Dugan shares. “The question I always asked myself when I left work was, ‘Did the decisions I made today have a positive influence on Soldiers?'” Dugan’s relentless approach to improving the lives of others shows why he deserves his induction to the Army Materiel Command’s Hall of Fame.

“The question I always asked myself when I left work was ‘Did the decisions I made today have a positive influence on Soldiers?”

Congratulations, John Dugan!
