Lean and Six Sigma are two different schools of thought, but essentially, they both aim to achieve the same thing: improve business processes and your bottom line. The difference is that Six Sigma uses an evidence-based, data-driven approach to identify variations and defects in a process and remove or reduce them. Lean focuses on cutting out unnecessary and wasteful steps: any part that doesn’t add value is removed.
Lean Six Sigma uses the DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve, and Control) methodology to identify the eight kinds of waste:
- Non-utilised talent
- Extra processing
