PIUSS: Lean and Six Sigma Comparison

Lean is a beneficial initiative to understand, which reduces the tasks that are detrimental in adding value. The foremost objective is to restructure the manufacturing process in an effort to enhance quality. Six Sigma is essentially related to the management of change by facilitating perfection and improving the business processes. The emphasis remains on improving the quality by reducing the defects to 3.4 per million opportunities.

A basic difference between Lean and Six Sigma is primarily that Lean is regarded as a business philosophy, whereas Six Sigma is a process improvement programme. Lean endeavours to disseminate a change in the organizational behaviour and values, and focuses on recognising and reducing waste. However, on the contrary, Six Sigma is an applicable and practicable process improvement programme, which does not fundamentally instigate to change the managerial/organizational traditions, or a perpetual behavioural change amongst the employees.
