“Use LSS toolkit for Strategic Business Deliverables”

Lean Six Sigma has its origins in the electronics company Motorola. It was coined in 1986 as a methodology to reduce defects.  It is a powerful tool. Over the last few decades, companies all over the world have saved countless millions by incorporating Lean and Six Sigma strategies into their processes.  It has a long record of being applied successfully across many industries: information technology, telecommunications, sales, healthcare, finance, and even the military have used Lean Six Sigma to transform processes with business process management ideas – often proving the key to staying ahead in today’s demanding work environment.  It is the combination of two different concepts, combined to form a powerful tool to improve business processes: Lean and Six Sigma.

Are you working on making your processes better?  How do you know what makes a good DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control) Project?  What are the different tools in the lean six sigma toolkit? What are the areas of application where different tools can be applied? What are the success metrics? We will discuss this and more while we understand how Lean Six Sigma is applied in various scenarios across industries.   We will also look at a few successful Lean Six Sigma projects across Intel.
