## We Offer More Than Just Six Sigma Training

It is important to begin by understanding the three main Six Sigma methodologies. Once you have gained an understanding of their differences, you can better determine which one is right for your organization.

## SIX SIGMA

Mastered and implemented by Motorola Corp., Six Sigma is regarded as the gold standard in methodologies for process improvement.

The core focus of Six Sigma is to reduce variance and errors in a production process. The result is higher quality products and services. The bottom-line goal is to reduce defects to 3.4 per one million opportunities.

## SIX SIGMA LEAN

A true combination of the best of Six Sigma and Lean, and most often used by organizations that realized they had issues in both arenas.

Six Sigma Lean results in eliminating waste as with methods defined in Lean and garnering process improvement by implementing DMAIC and DMADV in place.

## LEAN

Similar to Six Sigma in its focus on process improvement, Lean has a driving focus on attacking and eliminating waste.

Quite simply, if an activity does not add value to the end user of the product or service it should be eliminated. In our Lean Six Sigma training, you will learn the eight key areas in which Lean seeks to eliminate waste.
