What Is LEAN?

LEAN is Continuous Improvement

Lean Six Sigma service is about process speed and quality – finding ways to make your customers happier by getting services faster and better at lesser price, just in time. Reducing the cost of complexity – removing extra steps and non-value added activities in service realisation processes.

Lean Six Sigma is a team-focused approach that seeks to improve performance by eliminating waste and defects. … Simply put, under the tenets of Lean Six Sigma any use of resources that doesn’t create value for the end customer is considered a waste and should be eliminated.

LEAN prevents duplication, avoids human error, eliminates mistakes and leads to open communication. With LEAN Continuous Improvement implementation, all this becomes possible for your business.
