Building an Improvement Culture with Lean Six Sigma
Six Sigma Certification is a management approach to improve business performance and has blended the two individual specialisms of Lean and Six Sigma. Six Sigma is a set of highly effective techniques, methodologies and tools for process improvement.
The focus of Lean is about speed, efficiency, maximizing customer value and minimizing the areas of waste in processes. Six Sigma is the ongoing effort to continually reduce product and process variation through a defined project approach.
Incorporating elements from the work of many quality pioneers, it uses a set of quality management methods and creates a special infrastructure of people within the organization, who are experts in these methods.
Each 6 Sigma project carried out within an organization follows a defined sequence of steps and has specific value targets, for example: reduce process cycle time, reduce pollution, reduce costs, increase customer satisfaction, and increase profits.
