Lean Six Sigma (LSS) is a well-known approach for achieving operational excellence and does more than simply improve production processes. LSS combines the process improvement benefits of the Six Sigma method with the cost reduction benefits of Lean production. Lean Six Sigma emphasizes taking advantage of the “value-added” focus offered by the Lean method, while maintaining the statistical rigors of the Six Sigma methodology. It can help leaders discover opportunities far beyond operations, enhance financial performance and create organizations that have an inherent inclination toward innovation.
