More about Professional Training Courses in Six Sigma & Lean Management

Six Sigma and Lean Management Training CoursesSix Sigma and Lean Management are often taught simultaneously and combined for organizations when working within the fields of project management and quality management. However, the two techniques are quite different in nature despite their similarities. While both strive for the improvement of an organization, they focus on separate areas.

Six Sigma aims to reduce variation and errors within business or manufacturing processes while lean management aims to remove waste. Furthermore, Six Sigma is more focused on problems while Lean Management is more focused on flow (the time from the input of raw material to the output of a product).

Six Sigma

Six Sigma is a set of methods used to improve the processes within organizations and businesses. The concept was first developed in 1986 by Motorola, a multinational telecommunications corporation based in Illinois. In the mid-90s, General Electric (GE) adapted the concept of Six Sigma into their business strategy and the concept has grown exponentially since then.

The basic idea behind Six Sigma is to enhance the quality of manufacturing and business processes through the identification and removal of errors. The concept of Six Sigma receives its name because six standard deviations lie between the mean of a manufacturing or business process and the specification limit from the customer. Six Sigma expands the idea of quality management within an organization and employees of the organization can test into different levels of experience, including Yellow Belts, Green Belts, Black Belts, and Champions. These professionals usually work within the fields of quality management or project management. By using the Six Sigma process, employees will carry out a project in a series of steps and identify targets along the way.

The concept of Six Sigma differs from previous quality management and improvement efforts in the following ways:

  • Clear focus on reaching measurable financial returns from all Six Sigma projects
  • Increased focus on strong, passionate, and efficient support from team leaders and management
  • Commitment to basing decisions on verifiable data and statistics, rather than assumptions

Lean Management

Lean management supports the notion of constant and continuous improvement within an organization. Therefore, lean management is a long-term approach for organizations to achieve small, incremental changes in a process over time, enhancing their quality and efficiency. The end goal in lean management is to reduce or eliminate any and all forms of wastes, including time, money, and effort. Once this waste has been identified and reduced, the process can be revised and steps of the process that do not create value can be removed.

There are a few guidelines when working with lean management, including:

  • Value must be defined from the end-customers perspective
  • Identify each step in a process and eliminate steps which create no value
  • Make the steps that create value occur in a tight sequence
  • Repeat the above steps continuously until all waste has been removed
