Lean is a concept by which organizations learn how to reduce workload, eliminate waste and improve productivity. Lean Six Sigma is designed to allow companies to develop objective metrics by which organizational performance may be measured, standardized and improved. Lean is not a one-time process, but represents an organizational commitment, which has long-term ramifications and can help produce predictable, measurable and quantifiable results over the lifetime of an organization.
The objective of this program is to help organizations identify improvements through lean processes including how to improve speed and efficiency to complement and reinforce organizational effectiveness in meeting mission, vision and values. In addition, the program is intended to help organizations develop and integrate lean Six Sigma tools to more effectively meet customer, vendor, staff and stakeholder needs.
