The lean philosophy (evolved from the Toyota Production System) focuses on streamlining processes and elimination of waste, while six sigma (pioneered mostly by Motorola) emphasizes the reduction of process variation in order to achieve “zero defects” standards. Both philosophies strive to meet customers’ requirements flawlessly through the rigorous, continual improvement of processes and products.
Why should the lean six sigma philosophy be important for you?
Whether you work for a for-profit, nonprofit, or government entity, you will notice that quality and efficiency are ubiquitous and vital in every transaction. Numerous organizations across the globe have documented significant improvements in quality, customer satisfaction and cost savings through the implementation of lean six sigma. In addition, many of the lean six sigma concepts are also applicable to your professional and personal life.
