Lean six sigma

Design rigorous improvement plans with an agile application

HOW TO IMPROVE IN AN AGILE, SYSTEMATIC WAY?

Achieving results in the short term without taking great risks is one of the biggest challenges organizations are facing today. But how to achieve this?

 

Lean methodology proposes a continuous improvement process based on short cycles, which allows us to quickly identify and eliminate what does not generate value, experiment the solution immediately, and -as a result- learn fast.

 

Six Sigma complements this method by providing a depth of analysis. With a statistical basis and a rigorous approach to data, it helps design solutions that minimize the margin of error.

How do we apply Lean Six Sigma?

Value for stakeholders

We identify the requirements and needs of each group and seek opportunities for improvement.

Waste Disposal

We map the process, and then identify and eliminate activities that do not add value.

Gemba understanding

We visit the ´Gemba´ -the place where things happen- and talk to those who are part of the process.

Variation reduction

We eliminate the causes of variation that produce inefficiencies, and standardize in order to ensure the decision and stability of the process.

Flow and agility

We work with short cycles, experimenting on a small scale and making progressive improvements.

Creativity and dynamism

We apply creativity techniques that combine divergent thinking to create and convergent to decide.

Team learning

We work as a team in the design of the solution, the experimentation and learning.

Visible and committed leadership

We involve and train the coporative government and senior management so that they are the main drivers of change.

We establish more efficient processes

Reduction of the margin of error with the DMAIC technique (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control) and statistical validation of data.

Identification and disposal of waste that prevents the natural flow of the process.

Standardization of internal processes to achieve solidity, credibility and productivity, and sustain the results.

We learn from mistakes and successes

Cyclic improvement, experimentation and constant incorporation of corrections in the plan.

Learning curves that help acquire knowledge about the organization and develop as a company.

We develop a Lean culture

Creation of a culture of continuous improvement and production without waste.

Know-how transfer that is applicable to other improvement initiatives.

Change Management and corporate governance training to install global change.
