Why Is Lean Six Sigma Training Important for Your Business?

Lean Six Sigma is a focused business process improvement methodology that combines the strengths of lean thinking and Six Sigma statistical quality control procedures.

Lean enterprises enjoy the benefits related to faster speed such as:

  • Improved teamwork
  • Continuous improvement
  • Stable and flexible business processes
  • Elimination of waste
  • Reduction of process bottle necks
  • Less work-in-process (WIP)

Six Sigma enterprises enjoy the benefits related to more predictable performance such as:

  • More stable processes
  • Fewer surprises
  • More consistent products and services delivered to customers
  • Better insights into the cause of and ability to avoid defects

The basic LSS methodology has five major steps:

  1. Define or identify the process
  2. Measure the process output
  3. Analyze process inputs
  4. Improve the process by changing inputs
  5. Control the process by controlling the right input

General Electric has enjoyed tremendous process improvement through implementation of Six Sigma practices. In GE, Jack Welch started the implementation of Six Sigma in 1995 through a commitment to training leaders who mentored other employees for effective Six Sigma implementation.

After two years at GE, the effort had contributed up to $700 million in corporate benefits, resulting in very low service call rates and high product reliability.

Many other organizations—Amazon, Toyota, Motorola—have produced greater profits and happier customers using Lean Six Sigma.

A company with team members who’ve been trained to use Lean Six Sigma techniques can expect the following results:

  • Reduction in development production costs
  • Reduction in lead time
  • Faster customer service
  • A higher level of product and service quality
  • Improved contribution and productivity from employees

Here’s What Our Clients Are Saying About Us

BTI succeeds in its mission when an organization is measurably better in a way that makes a real difference, is able to sustain the change for the better, knows that it is better, and is satisfied with the result.

Business Transformation Institute, Inc. (BTI) joined in partnership with Raytheon SAS to help us bring together many diverse business units and to stabilize and improve our performance.  Throughout the years we have worked together and achieved CMMI Maturity Level 5 while bringing together geographically and process diverse units. This has allowed us to have a much higher fluidity in our staff and contract execution locations without suffering performance degradation.  Also, BTI has led the way in choreographing novel appraisal methodologies that have significantly reduced the cost of maintaining CMMI certification and ensuring that the programs do not suffer “set-back” during the gap between certification renewals.

Having BTI’s LSS black belts onboard means that I can now safely retire.  Thank you!

CNI was going to graduate from the federal government’s 8(a) program.  We had to be prepared to compete. Part of this is having good processes.  BTI helped us to do it.

Corporate Quality Manager from Chickasaw Nation Industries

I was fortunate to work with the BTI team on deploying the CMMI Level 2 practice at Western Union. There were a number of obstacles in garnering top-down changes and support everyone that the team was able to work through and make it successful.

Implementing CMMI practices and procedures in an unstructured environment is surely difficult, but the BTI team was able to see the big picture and also make sure that the details were correctly addressed and implemented.

I highly recommend the BTI team!
