What is Lean Six Sigma?
Lean Management and Six Sigma are two separate methods that together form Lean Six Sigma.
Lean Management focuses on eliminating wastes from processes. The question of whether a process step has value to a customer always forms the core issue here.
Six Sigma focuses on the consistent quality of a process, providing numerical support to ideas for improvement.
Together, Six Sigma and Lean Management create an ideal combination for implementing solid improvements in your processes!
What can you achieve with Lean Six Sigma?
Lean Six Sigma aims at making your processes run with more speed and focus on the customer. This is a constant process that can best be carried out by your own employees. They are the ones who are most familiar with the processes, and they often already have a wealth of improvement ideas in their minds.
So, with Lean Six Sigma you can achieve:
- constant quality improvement
- enthusiasm among employees
- increased customer satisfaction
Getting started with the Lean method
Lean Six Sigma assumes that your organisation intends to work independently using the method and that you will be retaining it in your organisation as an ongoing process. Of course, it is important that you first get to know the methodology well before you use Lean Six Sigma to improve processes. What is it? Where does it come from? What tools does it offer and – more importantly – how do I apply them?
