In August of this year, four military students were awarded scholarships from the Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation to participate in Georgia Tech-Savannah’s Veterans, Education, Training, and Transition (VET²) Lean Six Sigma Black Belt (LSSBB) program. Among them are Krystal Mosely, SFC (RET) at Fort Gordon with 15 years of Army service, and Andrew Baxter, First Lieutenant at Fort Benning with four years of Army service.
“Based on the experiences that I’ve had as a civilian thus far,” Mosely commented, “learning LSS will further help me understand and implement the procedures that will assist in making organizations succeed and keep employees safe.”
The VET2 program equips military veterans with industry-relevant knowledge and skillsets to support their entry into a challenging civilian job market upon their military retirement. Specifically, the LSSBB program provides participants with for acclimating to a new work environment, statistical tools for using Lean Six Sigma in the business world, the sustainability of improvements with control methods and change management tools, the Lean Six Sigma approach on how to implement the Define/Measure/Analyze/Improve/Control (DMAIC) methodology, and more.
