Lean Six Sigma is an internationally accepted model for transforming systems and industries sustainably and measurably. It recommends a system for companies to produce tangible outcomes in a structured manner (DMAIC, or Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control) thus maintaining continuous improvement. The first step is to identify and integrate what consumers want into systems. Costs are decreased, customer satisfaction is improved, and lead times are reduced with this methodology. The beauty of this method is that it takes advantage of people’s prior expertise and familiarity with the systems.

At Lean Six Sigma Experts of Illinois, we use the Lean Six Sigma methodology to improve both process and efficiency. The goal of Lean is to improve flow and value creation. Six Sigma looks for systems that are both stable and competitive. They are fully interchangeable and reinforce each other when used together.

What are the advantages of Six Sigma for Illinois businesses?

The following are some of the advantages of Six Sigma for businesses:

  • Profitability is increased, and waste is reduced.
  • The customer’s confidence has risen.
  • Changes the ethos of the business for the better in the long term.
  • Creates a course of action and objectives.
  • Encourages lifelong learning and growth.

Any production or service sector that performs poorly, according to one report, costs an organization a lot of money. In certain instances, this may account for over half of a service organization’s spending. According to the findings, “productive work” accounted for fewer than 10% of the operation cycle period. The remainder consists of waste, rework, and non-value-added activities.

In Lean Six Sigma, What Are The Different Roles?

It is a daunting challenge to improve a system. A true and long-term transformation is possible if the right people with the right Lean Six Sigma expertise are involved. Karate is the origin of the words “belts” or “bands” in the Dutch language.

In Illinois, how can you successfully involve top management?

To engage senior management early in the deployment preparation period, we want to conduct an executive launch session with Lean Six Sigma Experts of Illinois. The CEO or COO will coordinate these meetings in conjunction with the deployment coordinator, and they will provide direct presentations and main collaborators. A traditional executive launch may raise awareness about how Lean and Six Sigma support the CEO’s interests and empower senior team members to engage in the capability of Lean Six Sigma. It will also allow the senior management team to internalize the deployment strategy, make decisions, and schedule core operational and managerial tasks and habits.
