“Variation is evil”. A quote the former CEO of GE, Jack Welch is famous for. Yet many manufacturing processes are still challenged by it. Marred by variation in output, variation in the quality of raw materials and having to deal with variation in customer demand. Clearly Jack Welch was absolutely right, ultimately variation costs money. Reducing variation is a common objective but not an easy feat. A rigorous research plan, data and advanced analytics can help you find the root causes of variation and eliminate them. Lean Six Sigma provides the indispensable structure to realize this critical process improvement. 

Any Continuous Improvement professional will hugely benefit from Lean Six Sigma knowledge and expertise provided through our Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Manufacturing training.

Lean Six Sigma in your company

Although Lean Six Sigma is best known as a project-based improvement structure, it is much broader than that. Lean Six Sigma is an established philosophy, an organizational and improvement structure as well as a set of tools. Using this perspective Lean Six Sigma addresses organizational issues with respect to competitiveness, cost reduction, and customer satisfaction. 

Depending on your ambition, Lean Six Sigma can be implemented in phases. Every organization is unique, without a common blueprint that universally applies. Together with you, The Lean Six Sigma Company will develop a plan of action tailored to your organization.
