The lean Six Sigma story

What is Lean?

The goal of Lean is to identify and eliminate non-essential and non-value added tasks in the process in order to streamline production, improve quality and increase customer satisfaction.

What does that mean in your world?

  • Stop saving, printing, and filing forms away if it doesn’t add value
  • Stop waiting 2 days for a manager to sign off an invoice, when they don’t need to
  • Reduce the number of approvers in a process
  • Stop reinventing the wheel and each consultant have to write an advert from scratch each time
  • Dont allow managers to delay the recruitment process because they dont have time to interview
