Information : Teaming and Skills
Teaming is an integral part of the Lockheed Martin Electronics and Missiles (E&M) operating culture. This teaming philosophy, internal to Lockheed Martin as well as with customers, subcontractors and suppliers, is supported at the executive level throughout the bid, proposal, design, development, manufacturing, and test and evaluation phases of most major programs and functions.
The company has established a structured team process, helped teams establish metrics, and emphasized team focus on problem resolution and process improvement. This effective and efficient use of multi disciplinary teams has active participation from nearly 75% of the company employees.
Not only a standard within Lockheed Martin, the teaming concept also provides the basis for considerable external efforts. These programs include promoting long-term associations with subcontractors and suppliers, participating in education and training with industry programs instituted by the military services, and supporting learning assignments for military personnel who work in-house at Lockheed Martin on industry programs.
Lockheed Martin is successfully transitioning to a team-based environment, supported by a strong corporate culture. The company has determined that it is well on its way to establishing a team-based working environment and company culture.
