Understanding Six Sigma/Lean

The Six Sigma approach is a proven customer focused business strategy for superior quality of products and services. Six Sigma provides a competitive advantage for business through dramatic improvement. At several companies, small and large, Six Sigma has proven to be a very effective strategy for improving quality, reducing costs, reducing cycle times, increasing profit ability, and creating wealth for employees and shareholders.

The integration of the lean and Six Sigma has been detailed in the book Six Sigma Performance Handbook.
