What is Lean Six Sigma?

It combines several methodologies:

  • Six Sigma is an enterprise-wide, project-driven quality improvement approach that emphasizes a systematic approach to problem solving and making decisions based on data. Six Sigma results in increased customer satisfaction, improved quality and reduced costs.
  • DMAIC is a five-step methodology used for projects aimed at improving an existing business process.
  • Lean is a method that concentrates on reducing waste by improving work flow and eliminating mistakes.

Together, these methodologies provide companies a powerful means to delight their customers and improve bottom-line results. Initially implemented in manufacturing firms, Lean Six Sigma techniques are now being used by hospitals, educational institutions, banks, retail operations, insurance companies and other service-related industries to reduce waste, improve customer service, and reduce costs.
