The Principles of Six Sigma and Lean Management

Six 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). Lean and Six Sigma training will prepare you to put these important concepts into practice for the good of your organization.

Principles of 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.

The basic idea behind Six Sigma is to enhance the quality of manufacturing and business processes through the identification and removal of errors. The name Six Sigma came about because there are six standard deviations 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 levels of expertise include Yellow Belts, Green Belts, Black Belts, and Champions. Six Sigma and Lean training will prepare graduates to 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

Principles of Lean Management

Lean management training prepares participants to support constant and continuous improvement within an organization. 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 waste, 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. Lean training will teach participants the foundation of this process and show them how they can be put into place in an organization.
