Six Sigma vs. Lean Six Sigma Training

Lean and Six Sigma work so well together because they were designed with the same goal in mind. Both aim to reduce the waste and variation in processes to improve the quality of outputs for the customer. Both are customer focused. Both rely on data, rather than gut feel. And, both come with a core set of tools and structures to guide the improvement.
The main difference is how they identify the root cause of problems, and the language surrounding them.
For this reason, we at 100% Effective, think that they work better together than apart. Change agents and those introducing Business Improvement have more (and more varied) tools at their disposal. We think that, when it comes to improvement, the more you can bring to the table, the better. This is why we offer Lean Six Sigma as our standard.
Six Sigma is a data-driven approach to eliminate defects and improve quality for the customer. It is not, and should not be considered, to be simply a cost-saving measure. The term Six Sigma refers to the number of standard deviations between the mean value and the specification limit of any given process or output. The higher the Sigma, or standard deviations, the fewer products or outputs fall outside of the specification.
Six Sigma means that 99.9996% of the process output falls within the specification limit. So the output is defective or poor quality just 3.4 times for every million opportunities.
Any process from manufacturing to transactional, and products to services, can be measured in terms of its Sigma level. Businesses that adopt a Six Sigma approach, use a structured framework to gradually increase the Sigma level of their processes, with the aim of achieving Six Sigma quality.
