More About Lean

The “Lean” methodology is a time-tested mindset and strategy used to systematically reduce costs through the reduction of waste and non-value added activities. The successful business must know how to identify the critical value creation processes, strengthen them, and eliminate the rest. Lean has become the methodology of choice to accomplish that result.

What’s the difference between Lean and Six Sigma?

Lean is an improvement approach with an emphasis on waste and streamlining operations for maximum throughput. Six Sigma, a much broader approach, is a customer-focused (internal and external customers) problem-solving methodology that strives to deliver high performance reliability and value by improving processes, reducing defects and variation. Some businesses may benefit from a combination, thereby reducing the waste and streamlining business processes before improving the processes.
