What is Lean Six Sigma? 

Lean Six Sigma is a business process improvement methodology that can greatly improve the performance of an organization, by providing a structured approach to resolving problems. Lean Six Sigma can help you to bring about rapid improvements whether in a manufacturing or service-based context. Lean Six Sigma provides solutions for breakthrough performance improvements, making 50-90 % improvements feasible.

Our view on Lean Six Sigma

Lean Six Sigma combines two approaches: 1. Lean: a collection of techniques for reducing waste in a process by eliminating non-value added activities; 2. Six Sigma: a collection of techniques for improving the quality of products and services. One does not reach breakthrough improvements with just "hard" techniques and tools of the Lean Six Sigma, but also needs to manage resistance to change, a common thread with nearly all change initiatives. The effect of quality improvement is obtained only if the people side of the change is well managed. We spend a significant part of our training and coaching on change management skills. 

When an organization wants to obtain a sustainable change, Leadership also plays a crucial role, from executive-level support to coaching on the shop-floor. In our approach we combine proven elements of the Toyota Production System for operational improvement along with GE Change Acceleration Process methods. Our approach ensures the organization will capture the improvement results while simultaneously developing the leadership skills needed for reaching a sustainable change.

Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) for developing new products and services

Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) is a business-process management approach to design or re-designing new products or services with a measurably high performance from day one. While Lean Six Sigma requires a process to be in place, DFSS has the objective of determining the needs of customers and the business, and driving those needs into the design solution. The objective of DFSS is to design it on time, right the first time.
