Prepare With the Power of Dartmouth

What is Lean Six Sigma?

Lean Six Sigma is a powerful methodology for improving your organization’s existing processes. The combined power of Lean (used to remove waste and increase flow), and Six Sigma (used to reduce variation in a process) has saved companies many thousands of dollars on each completed project, and improved overall quality of a product or service.

Lean Six Sigma Framework: DMAIC Methodology

The DMAIC methodology involves five steps: Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control. This method is used to improve the current capabilities of an existing process. This is by far the most commonly used methodology of improvement teams. The DMAIC method is very robust. Many organizations have used it successfully to produce dramatic improvements. It provides a framework for guiding a CQI initiative

  • It provides a common language for completing stages and tollgates
  • It prevents skipping critical steps in the CQI process
  • It enables you to improve the way in which you perform CQI

White Paper: Are You and Your Business Ready?

Are you curious if you and/or your business are prepared to utilize Lean Six Sigma strategies, or improve on your current initiatives? We have developed a helpful White Paper that asks 5 simple questions about your current involvement with Lean Six Sigma. To gauge the level of organization participation, or to improve on existing LSS initiatives, we suggest following these five steps.
