|1 – What is Lean/Six Sigma?
This Executive Overview is a two-hour session to introduce LEAN Six Sigma.
LEAN Six Sigma blends both the LEAN principles and Six Sigma philosophy into one workshop.
Lean Six Sigma is the integration of two powerful process improvement methodologies. Lean Enterprise focuses on the concept of continuous flow using tools such as Value Stream Mapping, Kanban / Pull Systems, Setup Reduction / Quick Changeover and Kaizen Events.
