Lean Six Sigma


Lean is the relentless pursuit of the "ideal condition" through the continual elimination of "waste." An adaptation of the Toyota Production System, Lean requires changes to one's thinking and actions in order to produce a culture of systematic continuous improvement and problem solving.

Lean Management, therefore, is the approach whereby administrators, managers, and other staff members seek to change the way their organizations think about delivery processes, see systems and processes, and equip their organizations with the tools necessary to transform this new thinking into reality.
