 Comprehensive Methodology for Managing Work Processes for Optimal Success

Lean Six Sigma is a method and strategy that supports individuals and project management teams as they pinpoint problems and implement work process improvements. You don’t need to be an engineer to apply these practical principles and tools, and you can use them in any organization and industry. The fact is, applying Lean Six Sigma is easier to use than you think, and the guide will show you how.

As the legendary management guru Peter Drucker said, There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all.”

Unlocking Lean Six Sigma takes the best of the Lean method for waste reduction and continuous improvement and pairs it with the variation and quality control methods of Six Sigma. The result is a comprehensive methodology that supports you in managing work processes for optimal success.

  • Worksheets showing how you can develop what you learned in your environment.
  • Illustrations showing how an analyst would approach using the tools.
