Organizations of different sizes and types have used this disciplined, evidence–based approach, to transform and sustain high levels of performance. Amazing benefits have been achieved including reduced cycle times, reduced waste and costs, expanded capacity releasing capital, increased sales, improved customer loyalty and subsequently improved revenue and margins.

Lean Six Sigma and Organisational Excellence

Lean Sigma programs flourish and are sustained in an organisational environment that creates and operates leadership and management practices directing continuous improvement strategically. The Business Excellence Management philosophy provides such a framework for a broader set of practices in which Lean Sigma is a key component.

Amongst the well known Excellence Frameworks are the Australian, The European and the Baldridge (USA).
