Sigma Scale Use to Determine Long Hanging Fruit

The U.S. Government should be obsessive in collecting data about its programs and how they perform. With data in hand there are techniques avaiable (Lean, Six Sigma) to determine how effective a process or program is. By calculating its sigma level (6 sigma is near perfection) analysts can determine where improvement efforts should focus in order to get the largest Return On Investment.


These techniques are prevelent in industry so the wheel does not need to be reinvented.
