Maj. Kathleen Pearson Fabrizi is the Pennsylvania National Guard director of continuous improvement. She noted that members of the 193rd special Operations Wing, Harrisburg Air National Guard Base, Pennsylvania, implemented Lean Six Sigma practices in an effort to create more time for training during their regularly scheduled drill. Obtaining this extra time dedicated to training has resulted in an increasingly capable force. The Lean Six Sigma program is structured to prepare service members for success in an array of global challenges. The program has also helped build and construct a keystone of the National Guard: readiness.
