Does Lean Six Sigma Deliver Results?
Many companies go to great lengths and spend large sums of money to implement quality and improvement programs such as Lean Six Sigma . The problem is that most of these programs do not meet their expectations. In fact, many of them do not see the same results that you see quoted in continuous process improvement whitepapers and books. Why is this? Is it because the companies don’t know what they’re doing? Or is it something else?
I recorded this video to share my opinion about what I think is the problem when it comes to implementing Lean Six Sigma. Enjoy the video

So, improvement does not necessarily need full Lean Six Sigma program per se! However, it does need some basic problem solving tools to allow the employees to determine for themselves a) the real problem is, and b) how they can identify and eliminate the root cause.
