What does the term ‘Lean Six Sigma’ mean?
Lean Six Sigma is a methodology developed to power outstanding business performance through improving processes in order to reduce to defects.
The term refers to a statistical standard of excellence for processes – no more than 3.4 defects per million opportunities. Most processes produce 6,000 or more. For businesses striving to excel in an increasingly competitive world, that’s simply not good enough.
The methodology operates within a defined organisational deployment structure. Personnel at various levels operate and lead the Lean Six Sigma implementation programme.
