Best idea yet! Newt Gingrich implements his own “Lean Six Sigma”, scales back 1/3 of employees.


Have you ever had to jump over a hurdle?  Have you ever jumped over a hurdle with 100 pound weights? Which jump was easier?

That is the current modus operandi of Newt Gingrich’s campaign as he implements his own ‘Lean Six Sigma’ project and, as a result, scales back 1/3 of his staffers over the last week.

Lean Six Sigma is a  managerial concept of Lean and Six Sigma that results in the elimination of the 7 kinds of wastes (Defects, Overproduction, Transportation, Waiting, Inventory, Motion/Redundancy and Overprocessing) within goods and service at a rate of 3.4 defects per million opportunities.

Anybody familiar with Six Sigma, can vouch for it’s effectiveness.   Newt’s campaign team will now be leaner, stronger and more efficient than before as those 100 lbs weights were prohibiting him from jumping the hurdle.   Only the exceptional remain. That’s not necessarily a bad thing.

While there is the downfall of working with less, that’s not entirely a new concept to Gingrich’s campaign as his campaign has utilized fiscal responsibility in deciding to run a bare bones campaign and focus on big ideas.   While money is an issue as it is in every campaign- Gingrich’s campaign is equipped with creative thinkers who can use a little but get a lot in return. Look at South Carolina, North Florida, Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi.

What Gingrich lacks in money, he makes up for with creative thinking within his staff and hardcore dedication and support from his volunteers with many volunteers stepping up to do what the old staffers did- without pay. Many state that they are willing to volunteer because Newt is the “only experienced, conservative Choice” and that “it’s not about personal reward- it’s about doing what’s best for America”.

While political pundits are spinning one way, the reality- once again- is entirely different.  All terminations are unpleasant and unemployment is unfavorable but when you need the best, sometimes the rest have to fall away so you can rebuild your base to be more efficient and productive. That is exactly what Newt Gingrich is doing and this reorganization will propel Newt to the top of the pack by the Tampa Convention this August.

  1. Newt is humble and faces reality! He’s not a whiner and he works with what he’s given! This is a time of testing and a time of opportunity for Newt and those who are working hard in his campaign to do the best they can with what they have! Newt has the attributes to be a great president. It’s difficult to understand why everyone doesn’t discern that! However, it serves no purpose to try to figure that out. What is so evident is that Newt has the faith and the fortitude to continue in spite of critics who put him down and try to force him to quit! I stand up and applaud Newt and his staff and his wife!!! I applaud him strongly for sacrificing for those of us who need him and who earnestly seek to right the wrongs we see in our government and in our leadership! We can make a difference—-each one of us—-where we are in many ways! We have to try to be creative in our thinking and not become influenced by people’s opinions that don’t matter. It doesn’t matter what Billy O’Reilly thinks! It doesn’t matter what Wolf Blitzer says or thinks! It matter what God thinks and what He wills to happen in our country. We must seek His mercy and grace on Newt’s behalf and ultimately on our own behalf!

    • I wholeheartedly agree. I used to watch Billy O’reilly until he showed his true colors towards Newt. O’reilly, supposedly ‘fair and balanced’, and ‘No Spin Zone’ is obviously in the tank for Mitt Romney. I have since stopped watching his show and tweeted him as such, also asking my friends to do the same.

  2. I am with him until HE says he’s done, not the media. I want to see him go to convention so he can finally get his message out. The media and the GOP have been stifling his message from the beginning. People have a right to know the true Newt and then make their decision on those facts. I don’t believe Americans are that stupid where they want another 4 years of Obama or Obama-lite. Lord help us if they do…

    • AMEN!!!

    • so am I. Newt is my only choice and I stay by him till he stays in this race.

  3. GO NEWT ALL THE WAY!! This isn’t about getting a quick candidate it’s about getting the BEST candidate and that’s clearly NEWT GINGRICH!!

  4. Newt has a plan – he’s not a quitter – and neither am I !! The stakes are too high – AMERICA – the only beacon of hope in this world – could be lost for ourselves and many generations to come (maybe forever) if people don’t start thinking with their MINDS about who is the best person to defeat Obama and begin the hard work of repairing this country! Go NEWT 2012!

    Be on the lookout this summer for the “2016” movie about Obama!

  5. I have every confidence in you NEWT, you did it in 1994, and I just watched! I want to help you and this will be a WE THE PEOPLE campaign! Thank you for your BIG IDEAS and your vision for an American that will realize her EXCEPTIONALISM!

  6. great stuff 🙂 definitely enjoyed this post, i will read a bit more on the site after i’m done with work! 😛
