Lean Six Sigma Education

Lean Six Sigma For Executives

Meanwhile, many organisations regardless of their size, type or sector have been practicing Lean Six Sigma since decades. For some enterprises it became a competitive advantage, for other a necessity to stay in business. After all, organisations nowadays cannot afford to stay still. Ideally, improvements are on daily agenda of everyone: from executive board and senior leaders, through the management ranks to every single employee.
