Proven Problem Solving for Today’s Professionals

Lean Infographic

Lean Six Sigma is a combination of two different process improvement methods — Lean and Six Sigma.

Lean is based on the Toyota Production System that Taiichi Ohno developed in the 1940s. It’s based on five distinct principles: Define Value, Map the Value Stream, Create Flow, Establish Pull, and Pursue Perfection. Lean methodology is a process improvement toolkit that allows businesses to continuously eliminate waste and optimize workflow while delivering value to customers.

Six Sigma was developed by Bill Smith at Motorola in 1986 and popularized by General Electric in the mid-90’s. It’s based on the DMAIC improvement method — Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control — which is designed to help organizations analyze and solve process problems at the root to achieve outstanding and lasting performance. Organizations that use Six Sigma are able to produce outstanding efficiency — just an estimated 3.4 defects per million opportunities.

Together, Lean Six Sigma can help your organization become as efficient as possible.
