Lean Six Sigma is a world-class best practice method of continuously improving through processes. It integrates the twin approaches of Lean deriving from the automotive industry and culminating in the Toyota Production System (TPS) and Six Sigma with origins in Motorola, General Electric and Allied Signal. Deployed well it can dramatically improve the bottom-line performance of organisations. In this programme we cover the Seven Key Principles behind Lean Six Sigma, and look at reducing Waste and reducing Defects and Variation. We also look at how to secure Stakeholders' acceptance of the changes required, as well as the detailed steps of the DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve and Control) methodology.
