Lean and Six Sigma Introduction

Signature - Course Series

During the last couple of decades small, mid-sized and Fortune 500 companies have embraced Lean or/and Six Sigma to create more value and greater savings. 

Lean and Six Sigma is a data-driven approach for eliminating defects and waste in any business process. You can compare Lean and Six Sigma with turning your water faucet and experiencing the flow of clean, clear water. Reliable systems are in place to purify, treat, and pressure the water through the faucet. That is what Lean, and Six Sigma does to business: it treats the processes in business so that they deliver their intended result.
