Lean Six Sigma is a management approach to business performance improvement that has blended the two individual specialisms of Lean and Six Sigma together. This blend is designed to enable organizations to achieve the qualitative benefits of Six Sigma but at faster pace by applying Lean principles at the same time.
/ WHAT IS
The application of Lean Six Sigma allows for remarkable quality and efficiency improvements to be realised. Lean Six Sigma combines Lean Manufacturing (originally developed by Toyota) and Six Sigma (originally developed by Motorola).
These quality management strategies are widely used worldwide, with proven success stories in a wide variety of industries and services driven organizations.
Fundamentally Six Sigma strives to reduce process variations and errors, using a systematic approach of DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve and Control) to determine and improve all processes to a Six Sigma level that always meets client expectations.
