Lean and Six Sigma complement each other. Lean accelerates Six Sigma, delivering greater results than what would typically be achieved by Lean or Six Sigma individually.
No matter what anyone tells you, cultural change is challenging and takes time, though the rewards in achieving operational excellence through Lean Six Sigma are well worth the risk. Through our proven methods you will be able to reap the benefits of Six Sigma much more quickly than your competitors. Part of Lean Six Sigma deployment is development of internal change agents (Black Belt and Green Belt), project selection, and intensive coaching.
At SSCX we have developed through experience our own Lean Six Sigma implementation model, which we have successfully deployed in some of the largest companies in the Asia Pacific region with great results. We seek to analyze and fully understand how Lean Six Sigma will truly help your company improve process outputs, and then train the people most suited to drive strategic deployments, ensuring that they fully understand the philosophy and strategies involved. In this way we can be certain your company can achieve the Better Result.

Combining these two methods gives your improvement team a comprehensive tool set to increase the speed and effectiveness of any process within your organization – resulting in increased revenue, reduced costs and improved collaboration.
Simply put, Lean Six Sigma increases revenue by enabling your organization to do more with less – Sell, manufacture and provide more products or services using less resources.
These phases each contain a set of tools and techniques that guide the problem solver through the improvement process from start to finish. Other than DMAIC, there are other framework, for example: DMEDI, DMADV.
Six Sigma is driven by understanding of customer and business needs, disciplined use of facts, data, and statistical analysis in analyzing root causes and finding an effective solution. Six Sigma also prescribes the infrastructure needed to achieve and sustain success, and no previous operational excellence programs including Total Quality Management has such requirements.
The Six Sigma methodology is based on the concept that “process variation” can be reduced using statistical tools.
The term “Six Sigma” indicating the level of perfomance, the higher the sigma level is the better. Originally, Six Sigma is reflecting statistical reference of 3.4 defects per million opportunities.
Lean, as set of tools, is developed to reduce the waste associated with the flow of materials and information in a process from beginning to end. The goal of Lean is to identify and eliminate non-essential and non-value added steps in the business process in order to streamline production, improve quality and gain customer loyalty.
Black Belts should be able to lead any team across the organization in executing Lean Six Sigma projects. Black Belts may also conduct Lean Six Sigma training and act as coaches and mentors to other Belts-in-training.
At SSCX, Black Belt Certification can be obtained after successfully completed a minimum of 100 hours of in-class training and a 4-5 months project execution.

Green Belts may lead simple projects under the guidance of a Black Belt or may work as a team member on a large project team.
At SSCX, Green Belt Certification can be obtained after successfully completed a minimum of 50 hours of in-class training and a 3-4 months project execution.
