Lean Six Sigma is the gold standard of improvement programs. This training enables organizations to become more productive while also reducing costs. The Lean process emphasizes waste reduction and improved processing speed and Six Sigma stresses an analytical approach for the elimination of defects and reduction of variation. When combined, they can solve organizational problems and improve performance, leading to a competitive edge.
