Contrary to popular belief, Lean Six Sigma is not just an improvement methodology used by Process Managers to reduce waste and increase profitability. It also teaches every team member in your organisation (irrespective of job title or position) the changes they can make to support the process improvement team and make incremental changes to improve your organisation overall.
In this article, we explore what Lean Six Sigma is and explore the individual and organisational benefits Lean Six Sigma offers.
Lean Six Sigma combines two process improvement methodologies, ‘Lean’ and ‘Six Sigma’. These methodologies can help reduce waste and eliminate defects and variation while preserving quality and improving customer satisfaction.
Lean Six Sigma has the power to transform your business. Book an appointment with our Business Development Director to discuss how we can support your corporate training.
Lean teaches you how to maximise your customer value while minimising areas of waste in processes, creating higher customer satisfaction with fewer resources wasted.
Six Sigma teaches you how to continually reduce process and product variation with a defined project approach.
When you combine these two methodologies, you can benefit from a wide range of improvements to your business, including a reduction in spending, improved business retention, higher staff morale, and an increase in customer satisfaction and loyalty.

There’s no doubt that Lean Six Sigma tools will help your organisation in many ways.
Some of the main ways Lean Six Sigma can help your organisation include helping to eliminate inconsistencies, having processes performed uniformly, speeding up performance, and reaching KPIs sooner.
Other organisational benefits include:
Your organisation can also benefit from employee improvements gained through Lean Six Sigma training. Every team member trained to at least a Yellow Belt level can become more mindful of the changes they can make to help improve your organisation overall.
The main benefits Lean Six Sigma has on employees at an individual level include:
Training each of your employees in Lean Six Sigma is most definitely worthwhile. If you’re looking to make changes to the way your business thinks and operates, you will want to have employees who understand the value of the tools and knowledge gained through Lean Six Sigma training.
For most SMEs, we suggest having every staff member trained at Yellow Belt Level, with 3-5 Green Belt holders and 1 Black Belt to oversee the process improvement responsibility and manage the other Belts. You can discuss your requirements with our Business Development Director, Gemma Jones, via email - firstname.lastname@example.org, or speak with her directly on 020 3198 7587.
Training with e-Careers is straightforward. We offer a range of options for corporate clients, including dedicated training sessions, online training via our eLearning platform, and open Virtual Classroom sessions, so there’s something for every business training style.
Our Lean Six Sigma training is awarded by CEPAS, a Bureau Veritas company. Our partnership with CEPAS relates to a market-leading Lean Six Sigma offering, allowing delegates to meet ISO 18404. Before the CEPAS and e-Careers partnership, meeting ISO 18404 was a long and complicated process.
Lean Six Sigma training benefits every business and every employee.
No matter what industry you work in or what your job role is, there is a Lean Six Sigma certificate available to help you support your organisation’s growth and process improvement.
