What is Lean Six Sigma?

Lean Six Sigma is a method to make businesses better by cutting out mistakes and making processes more consistent. It combines Lean, which gets rid of waste like overproduction, with Six Sigma, which reduces variation in processes. Together, they help businesses improve quality, efficiency, and customer satisfaction. They use a method called DMAIC:

Define: Understand the problem.

Measure: Figure out how things are currently done.

Analyse: Find out why there are problems.

Improve: Make changes to fix the issues.

Control: Put measures in place to keep things running smoothly.

For Lean Six Sigma to work well, leaders need to be fully committed and employees need to be actively involved. It’s about everyone working together to identify problems and make things better. When leaders show they’re serious about improving processes, and when employees contribute their ideas and insights, the organisation can achieve real and lasting improvements in quality and efficiency.

Is Lean SIx Sigma right for my business?

Many companies question if Lean Six Sigma is right for them, especially as it’s often linked to industries like automotive. This perception can make businesses think Lean isn’t relevant to them, causing them to overlook it. However, we believe any business with processes can benefit from Lean principles.

If your business finds itself at this crossroads, we encourage you to consider our “Taste of Lean” workshops. These workshops are only 4 hours long and cover four of the most valuable Lean tools. They offer a comprehensive introduction to the Lean philosophy and demonstrate how it can enhance your business operations. It’s a great opportunity to gain insights and explore the potential benefits of Lean for your organisation.
