What is Lean?
Health Industry Advisor

Lean is a set of business operating principles/methodologies originally established by Toyota focused on maximizing value to the customer by identifying and eliminating waste.

Lean principles (taught by the right coach) can be applied to any business scenario and be used to drive cost reductions, accelerate productivity improvements and build a strong change-focused culture.

Lean vs Six Sigma
Health Industry Advisor

Lean & Six Sigma tools pair well together as Lean has a broad scope to identify problem areas and Sigma focuses down deep to address the root cause.

Lean Six Sigma

Use Lean to start your abnormality identification process and to manage operations on a day-to-day basis.

Use Six Sigma to drill down into the abnormalities that Lean identified and eliminate the issue by isolating the true root cause factors.
