Lean Six Sigma
When it is time to be more efficient, it is time to go Lean.
Lean is the purposeful elimination of wasteful activities. Six Sigma is a problem-solving model designed to improve quality and eliminate variation. Together they make Lean Six Sigma - a way to do things better.
Many organizations struggle with issues such as: limited capacity, disorganization, excessive steps in the production or service delivery process and defects or errors in work product.
These problems manifest themselves in all areas of an organization from product development, to service delivery to accounting and reporting to stakeholders.
It’s not always easy to recognize such wastes but you may recognize them as delays in delivering your product or service to your customers or clients, customer complaints, excess overtime, lack of capacity, too much inventory, employee moral issues, and lengthy time periods to process information and receive data.
The challenge can be convincing others within the organization that there is a better way to do things. Change is difficult if not managed correctly and often times fails. Our team of Lean Six Sigma (Lean) certified professionals has the skills and experience needed to help your team improve your processes, grow your lean leadership and ultimately improve your organization. Truly benefiting from all Lean has to offer can take time and may include multiple phases, and may be repeated depending on the individuals, processes, and departments involved.
* Training and education, addressing the basics of Lean
* Identifying processes which could benefit from applying Lean
* Accountability and coaching for leaders and individuals directly involved in a Lean process
* Mapping, analyzing and improving processes
Every organization is unique. Likewise, every process is unique. We work with governments, contractors, university-related organizations and other CPA firms, to name a few. Contact us to learn more about how your organization can benefit from adopting a Lean-focused culture.
