What are the Goals of Lean Six Sigma?
At the heart of Six Sigma is the elimination of variation in business processes, thereby eliminating waste. While the reduction in variation is the goal of Six Sigma, the Lean Six Sigma approach concentrates most of its effort on the systematic elimination of waste. If you desire a process that is fast, essentially defect-free, and without waste, then Lean Six Sigma is the strategy of choice. Lean Six Sigma drives value through improvements in the following areas:
- Cost Reduction
- Increased Throughput
- Defect Reduction
- Customer Satisfaction and Retention
- Market Growth
