Pulling from the best qualities of the two most popular business process improvement methodologies, Lean Six Sigma combines the focus of LEAN (eliminating waste to streamline processes) and the focus of Six Sigma (reducing variation) to create a process improvement system built on the DMAIC model. And what is that?
The Six Sigma approach focused on identifying and eliminating anything that caused variation in the process. When the variation is gone, the process results can be precisely predicted – every time.
In addition, within an organization, promotions are often based upon how you have demonstrated your leadership skills. Effectively leading a Lean Six Sigma project shows senior management and HR that you are ready for greater responsibility. The average annual salary in the USA for Lean Six Sigma Black belts is just under $100,000.
