Posted by on Apr 2, 2012 in Lean Six Sigma | 0 comments

Lean Six Sigma is an array of business best practices and skills that are essential ingredients for a successful organization.  It allows an organization to develop these best practices and skills as they proceed in their quest for continuous improvement.

There is no fixed prescription for implementing Lean Six Sigma and companies should not try to model their effort after another company.  For sure there are guidelines, but no rigid formulas, and a company should take into consideration their business needs and priorities, and their readiness for change.

Huge opportunities exists in every organization.  In management, finance, customer service, marketing, purchasing, logistics, manufacturing, etc., processes can be improved and made more effective and efficient.  Using the Lean Six Sigma tools and techniques, an organization can tap into these gold mines of opportunity.

But more importantly, Lean Six Sigma is about people excellence.  Creativity, collaboration, communication, dedication — are infinitely more powerful than a group of statistical analysts.  Lean Six Sigma can inspire and motivate employees to come up with better ideas, higher performance, and create a synergy between individuals.
