Lean Six Sigma is a systematic approach to enhance profitability, productivity, overall business performance and most importantly, customer satisfaction.  It uses a statistical approach and methodology to measure and reduce variation to improve performance and eliminate waste, including defects, over-production, waiting, non-utilised talent, transportation, inventory, motion and extra-processing.  

We are now living in an ever-increasingly digital world, and, because of COVID-19, more companies have been forced to adopt a digital-first approach.  Lean Six Sigma is beneficial tool for companies that are seeking to embrace large organisational changes, such as a full digital transformation, as it can assist in driving simplification, automation and digitisation of processes.
