Posted November 18, 2015

Lean Six Sigma (LSS) is a customer centric way of thinking and problem solving that seeks to continually identify and eliminate waste.

Lean Six Sigma focuses on:
-Meeting the customer needs
-Eliminating waste (non-value adding activities)
-Problem solving
-Developing people

In most businesses, > 90% of resources are spent performing non-value adding activities. Thus, the biggest benefits are driven by eliminating waste.

The elimination of waste results in increased speed and capacity, as well as reduced costs and customer complaints.
