Lean Six Sigma is a proven methodology aimed at improving productivity, increasing customer satisfaction, and reducing operational costs.
Lean refers to maximising customer value and minimising the areas of waste in processes, creating enhanced customer satisfaction and less wasted resources. Six Sigma is the ongoing effort to continually reduce product and process variation through a defined project approach.
Combining these two approaches results in a range of benefits including, reduced costs, retained business, improved staff morale, and increased customer satisfaction.
ISO 18404:2015 is the international standard for Lean Six Sigma, which defines management systems requirements for implementing and managing Lean Six Sigma, and the required competencies for people adopting and applying these two approaches.
Lean Six Sigma professionals are in high demand due to their ability to use problem-solving techniques to reach business solutions, save costs, ensure higher customer satisfaction, and improve efficiency in all areas of the business. All of this is achieved while assuring high-quality control throughout the process.
